San Bernardino County Contracts Iteris for Traffic Signal Synchronization

Cabazon, California, USA - October 7, 2015: Interstate 10, one of Southern California Freeways, runs from Santa Monica, through Los Angeles and San Bernardino, to the border with Arizona.

The San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) has signed a 12-month contract extension with Iteris for traffic signal synchronization-related managed services. The work will be done across 16 cities in the San Bernardino Valley, including: the cities of Chino, Chino Hills, Colton, Fontana, Grand Terrace, Highland, Loma Linda, Montclair, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, Redlands, Rialto, San Bernardino, Upland, and Yucaipa – as well as the County of San Bernardino. The primary goal of the project is to improve traffic flow and safety for vehicles, buses, bicycles, and pedestrians while also reducing travel times, number of stops, and carbon emissions along the transportation corridors. 

The new service orders address traffic signal timing improvements and ongoing traffic device and infrastructure maintenance for up to 1,250 signalized intersections to be performed on as-needed basis. The intersections are in the San Bernardino Valley Coordinated Traffic Signal System (SBVCTSS) corridors – a heavily traveled network of roads covering more than 250 square miles. Iteris’ ClearGuide™ software-as-a-service solution will be used to conduct before-and-after evaluations on all retimed corridors. Iteris expects to begin the project immediately.

“We are proud to continue to support the SBCTA’s goal of improving safety and mobility in the San Bernardino Valley with this expansive traffic signal synchronization program, which demonstrates growing demand for Iteris’ software-enabled managed services in Southern California,” said Scott Carlson, regional vice president, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “The expansion of this initiative with the SBCTA will continue to decrease travel times and overall traffic congestion, as well as improve air quality and reduce the existing transportation system’s impact on the environment.”
