The city of Inglewood is taking steps to address the incoming traffic congestion related to the NFL stadium. Inglewood residents have yet to hear what the city’s plans are for parking the nearly 50,000 cars expected to descend upon the city on game days.
Iteris is to provide design and operations services to traffic management centres (TMCs) in a bid to improve road safety in the greater Los Angeles area.
The contracts, in the cities of Inglewood and Glendale, total more than $1 million, and support the cities’ stated goals of ingesting data from Internet of Things (IoT) devices into central traffic operations hubs to better anticipate traffic-related issues.
In Inglewood, Iteris will design its new main TMC and related traffic management operations systems. As part of the city’s ITS buildout, TMC technologies and a Signal Shop TMC system will support traffic operations and facilitate the implementation of emergency management plans to allow traffic to be re-directed during major traffic activity.
Scott Carlson, vice president and assistant general manager, transportation systems at Iteris, says the company will utilize resources from its TMC implementation across the US to resolve issues facing freeways and arterial roads throughout Inglewood.
