Why: The City utilizes an advanced Intelligent Traffic System (ITS) to synchronize traffic signal timing system for the City’s 80 traffic signals. The entire system relies on a fiber backbone connecting back to the Traffic Control Center (TCC) at City Hall.
What: The project would add fiber along Bell Road and Old Alabama Road thereby creating redundancy and increasing reliability for instances and occasions when construction or unanticipated work disrupts the main fiber loops connecting the City’s traffic signal system.
