Intelligent Transportation Systems
ITS includes the use of field devices, communications infrastructure, and computer systems in an effort to improve traffic safety and mobility during congested periods, construction activities, maintenance activities, and incidents such as traffic collisions and other emergencies. ITS will assist staff in the overall monitoring of the roadway network for failures, and provide tools for allowing the changing of traffic patterns.

The Engineering Department is in the planning stages of developing ITS for Edmond. This will include a Traffic Management Center (TMC) where traffic will be monitored for traffic incidents and other traffic congestion issues. If an incident or congestion issue is detected the situation will be evaluated and if an adjustment can be made to help move traffic away from or around that situation then the appropriate adjustment will be made.

The monitoring will be accomplished through a network of fiber optic cables that will allow information to flow from the traffic lights to the TMC and back to the traffic lights.

All signalized intersections and school zones are expected to be on line at a rate of approximately 20 intersections per year pending the availability of funding. The first group of intersections will be along the Edmond Road/2nd Street corridor and is expected to take place in the spring of 2014.
