This project involves the installation of Vehicle Detection Systems (VDS) at 142 locations throughout Washington, DC. Construction included furnishing and installing sensors, wireless communication devices, field modems and repeaters; all connections, conduit, wiring, cables and associated mounting hardware; and connecting the system to the existing traffic controller communications network. The project also involved the integration and testing of all modems, servers, equipment, hardware, central software and firmware necessary to implement a fully functional VDS system; provide training to District Department of Transportation personnel in the installation, maintenance and operation of the permanent equipment and software; and provide documentation of all design, system, interface, maintenance and operational documentation to DDOT.
This ARRA (Stimulus) Project required a portion of design-build elements consisting of 1,344 sensors, 133 access points, 154 repeaters and 176 modems. Fort myer teamed with AECOM to design and install 20 locations on two major roadway corridors.
