SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN–(Marketwired – June 24, 2015) – International Road Dynamics (IRD) (TSX:IRD) announced today the award of a Quantity Purchase Agreement (QPA) valued at approximately USD $3.8 Million from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT). Under this agreement, IRD will be issued task orders to provide all necessary electronic equipment, software, and services required to build, reconstruct, test, calibrate, and maintain the Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) and Virtual Weigh-in-Motion Systems (VWS) equipped with IRD manufactured hardware and software. The systems supplied under this contract will provide high accuracy traffic and weight data to the state for planning, roadway design, and weight compliance purposes.

The contract is a task-order based agreement and there is no limit to the number of Quantity Purchase Awards (QPAs) to be released. The contract is a long-term commitment that runs from July 1st, 2015 through April 30th, 2019. With the addition of this award, IRD now has four active QPA’s with the State of Indiana.

Each site will be comprised of a WIM sensor array specified by INDOT as appropriate for the type of traffic data to be collected at that location.
