Press-release highlights ongoing effort with the Indiana Toll Road Concession Company (ITRCC).
Indiana Toll Road Concession Company LLC (ITRCC) is extending the fiber optic backbone and intelligent transportation system (ITS) along the I-80/I-90 Indiana Toll Road. More than 85 miles of conduit and fiber optic cable will be designed and built between mile markers 0 to 23 and 92 to 157 and ITS devices will be installed along the entire 157-mile Indiana Toll Road (ITR) route. The completed system will provide the ITRCC with the ability to offer advanced incident messaging, monitor traffic flows and reduce speeds when necessary along the toll highway system from the Illinois to the Ohio border as well as detect wrong way motorists on a select number of ramps.
The project's scope includes:
- 20 closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras
- 13 dynamic message signs (DMS)
- 2 ITR exit ramps integrated with a wrong way detection system (WWDS)
The WWDS will include detection, "Wrong Way" signs with flashing LEDs and an alert that is broadcast to the advanced traffic management system at the ITRCC Control Center for notification and review. Mainline and ramp toll plazas will be integrated onto the fiber network to serve as the primary communications route back to the ITRCC Administration Building in Elkhart, Ind.
Construction on the multi-phased, $34M-project kicked off in June 2019, with completion anticipated for the fourth quarter of 2020.
