SANTA ANA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/search?q=%24ITI&src=ctag” target=”_blank”gt;$ITIlt;/agt; lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/I405?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#I405lt;/agt;–Iteris,
Inc.
(NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for
transportation and agriculture, today announced that it has been awarded
new contracts totaling $1.4 million with OC
405 Partners
for traffic manager support, construction operations
and maintenance, and associated construction phase services in support
of the I-405
Improvement Project
in southern California.


The $1.9 billion I-405 Improvement Project is the largest-scale project
ever undertaken by Orange County Transportation Authority, in
cooperation with the California Department of Transportation. The
project will improve 16 miles of I-405 between the SR-73 freeway in
Costa Mesa and I-605 near the L.A. County line. The project includes
adding one regular lane in each direction between Euclid Street and
I-605, and making improvements to freeway entrances, exits and bridges.
In addition, the project will add the 405 Express Lanes, incorporating
the existing carpool lanes and a new lane in each direction between
SR-73 and I-605. The multi-year improvement project will be complete in
2023.

Iteris is responsible for the freeway intelligent transportation system
(ITS) and Express Lane infrastructure design, temporary ITS
infrastructure for use during construction, development of the project
traffic management plan, and signal design at 42 intersections
throughout the corridor. In November 2018, Iteris announced
the addition of its Iteris iPeMS analytics and visualization software as
a service to the project in support of traffic management operations
during construction. This newly awarded $1.4 million activity, which has
a 12-month term from date of execution, focuses on providing on-site
traffic manager support and associated construction phase services.

“Since the I-405 Improvement Project’s launch in March 2017, Iteris has
been proud to support this vital transportation initiative to make roads
significantly safer and more efficient for residents and commuters,”
said Steven Bradley, vice president, Transportation Systems at Iteris.
“Iteris is thrilled to provide traffic manager support and staffing, as
well as construction operations and maintenance services, in this new
phase of the project.”

Iteris is leading numerous ITS design and communication infrastructure
projects nationwide, enabling smart mobility and smart communities.
Iteris’ Transportation Systems business unit provides advanced design,
real-time data analytics and actionable informatics to safely improve
mobility within communities and ready the roadways for
connected/autonomous vehicles in smart cities.
