The city of Joliet in Illinois has selected Iteris for a smart mobility infrastructure initiative. Iteris will improve safety and mobility for all road users, while increasing sustainability across key signalised intersections.

As part of the two year initiative to improve traffic flow and safety, Iteris will conduct a centralised traffic management system study, providing services in the areas of master plan development, procurement of central software and detailed design of Phase A of the project.

The study will focus on 130 key signalised intersections. In addition to development of the master plan and managing the new CTMS, Iteris will conduct field data collection and inventory, project development, stakeholder outreach, software procurement, detailed design of Phase A, and assistance with the bid process and construction engineering.

The programme supports the City of Joliet’s goals to reduce citywide travel time, fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, while improving safety and mobility, and overall travel experience for all road users, including vehicles, buses, bicycles and pedestrians.

By reducing delays and stops on key corridors for passenger vehicles and heavy vehicles, the project will help reduce CO2 emissions and fuel consumption, which in turn will contribute to sustainable environmental and air quality improvements.

“We are proud to support the City of Joliet’s goals of improving safety, mobility and sustainability for all road users in the city by embarking on this smart mobility infrastructure management project,” said Scott Carlson, general manager and vice president, Mobility Professional Services at Iteris. “This initiative represents the continued expansion of Iteris’ mobility consulting services in the Midwest, and will ultimately help to increase the value, effectiveness and resilience of the region’s existing transportation infrastructure, while also improving air quality and reducing fuel consumption.”
