Phase II, Intelligent Transportation System on portions of Broadway, Danforth, Covell, and Santa Fe
This project consists of installing fiber optic cable and replacing the traffic signal cabinets and controllers and associated signal equipment at 22 intersections on portions of Broadway, Danforth, Covell, and Santa Fe in order to bring them into compliance with the National Transportation Communication for Intelligent Transportation System Protocol (NTCIP) standards. These intersections will connect to the existing Traffic Management Center (TMC) via fiber optics and wireless communication network.
This project was awarded by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) to Traffic Signal Inc in the amount of $6,751,535.68. The contract is 375 calendar days and work will begin by February 4, 2019. ODOT has given the contractor an additional 40 days due to permit delays by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. The City received 80% federal funds with the remaining 20% City funds.
February 2020 Update: The contractor is currently installing conduit on 33rd Street under the BNSF railroad tracks. Contractor continues working on the Broadway intersections which will include the complete re-wiring of the 15th and Broadway intersection. The infra-red detection system has been installed at most intersections along with battery back up system, new controller cabinets, CCTV cameras, audible pedestrian crossing system. The next major step will be connecting the intersections via an ethernet switch which will transmit information back to the TMC.
