Summary Information

In San Antonio, Texas, an integrated freeway/incident management system was developed as part of a freeway expansion project. The project covered a 28.9-mile stretch of I-10, I-410, and US 281 in the northern region of San Antonio. The cost of the freeway and incident management expansion project was approximately $26.6 million with an estimated annual O&M cost of $852,000. The majority of the cost was for surveillance, detection, and information equipment and communications hardware. Detection technologies such as acoustic sensors, loops, and digital detectors, closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, dynamic message signs and lane control systems, and supporting fiber optic communications infrastructure were deployed. The cost of mobilization (e.g., keeping traffic moving during deployment) during the expansion was approximately $2 million. This cost was kept low based on the planning decision to deploy the ITS components as part of the highway reconstruction.
