The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC), in partnership with the City of Oakland and the Port of Oakland (Port), is implementing a Global Opportunities at the Port of Oakland (GoPort) Program. This comprehensive transportation technology and congestion management project, known as the Freight Intelligent Transportation System (FITS), will involve the use of intelligent transportation systems, advanced technology, and innovation to improve operations of arterial roadways in the Port environment and provide truck-specific regional traveler information dissemination to and from the Port.
FITS improvements will include the implementation of transportation technologies such as changeable message signs, camera surveillance, fiber and WiFi communications, a joint traffic management center/emergency operations center, traffic signal enhancements, vehicle and queue detection, train detection system, weigh-in-motion technology, GoPort Freight ITS information system/application and a basic smart parking system. These innovative strategies will address the significant increase in intermodal railyard demand and daily truck and intermodal trips the Port is expected to experience from substantial growth in import and export volumes.
All projects are scheduled to be completed by late 2021, followed by 12 months of systems testing. The project is expected to go live in late 2022.
