ATG Traffic Specialists Help North Texas Motorists Through Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
ATG helped TxDOT’s Fort Worth District find better ways to communicate and accurately alert motorists of changing traffic conditions in their service area.
To provide motorists with reliable, cost effective service with actionable information about changing traffic conditions and travel times, TxDOT’s Fort Worth District looked to ATG for solutions. ATG ITS specialists developed an Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Master Plan focused on improving the District’s overall safety and mobility.
ATG performed comprehensive existing conditions evaluations that identified congestion points and locations with high crash frequency. ATG applied this information to strategically implement closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, dynamic message signs (DMS), and vehicle sensors to enhance TxDOT’s ability to provide more accurate and useful information to motorists.
Advance planning was also performed to address limited connectivity to the rural areas of the District through improved use of fiber optic cable and wireless communication prioritization. ATG’s ITS Master Plan study delivered an ITS roadmap that allows TxDOT to efficiently become aware and reliably disseminate better information with more reliable travel times for motorists.
