SANTA ANA, Calif.

Iteris, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ITI), a leader in providing information solutions to the transportation and agriculture markets, as part of the Daniel Consultants, Inc. (DCI) team, was selected by the District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT), to upgrade and implement an Adaptive Traffic Signal Control system on three major arterials in the Washington, D.C. area. Iteris’ contract value for this work is approximately $714,000 and is expected to commence immediately.

DDOT is building an adaptive signal control system in order to provide more efficient signal operations, and as part of this effort, is implementing extensive traffic detection systems on the three major arterials to monitor traffic flow. A total of over 50 signalized intersections are included as part of the initial system procurement project.

Iteris’ work is expected to include procurement and installation of central hardware and software that upgrades the District’s current central traffic control system with an adaptive control module to enhance the system functionality. Iteris also plans to procure and implement upgrades to existing controllers and test and validate operations involving the upgraded central system, upgraded controllers, and related detection systems being installed along the selected arterial routes.

“We are excited to help bring an adaptive traffic control system to our Nation’s Capital,” said Ramin Massoumi, senior vice president and general manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “Iteris continues to be heavily involved in the implementation of adaptive systems throughout the U.S., and we believe Washington, D.C. will benefit from the efficient upgrade of their traffic signal system.”

Iteris was involved in a feasibility study for adaptive control for DDOT in 2011, which identified several options for implementing adaptive signal systems, and recommended the arterial routes and intersections, which are part of the first phase implementation effort.

According to M.G. Habib, the DDOT Project Manager for the adaptive traffic signal system project, the transportation objectives in the District include making key investments in improving traffic operations of the network and reducing the many of hours of congestion that affect the movement of people and goods. The adaptive traffic control system is one of the key elements in improving the transportation system operations.
