US Traffic wins Phase III New York City DOT traffic control contract

US Traffic Corporation, a division of Peek Traffic Corporation, has announced that it has been awarded a procurement contract by the New York City Department of Transportation (NYC-DOT). The contract will provide advanced solid-state traffic control devices to expand system upgrades across the City of New York. The agreement calls for the company to supply traffic control cabinets, intersection signal controllers, as well as related software and hardware over the next few years to replace aging electromechanical controller systems throughout the city. The contract for the multi-year project covers the balance of New York City’s more than 12,000 signalized intersections.

The company will provide equipment and software that will be compatible with: existing VTCS operation; existing ASTC equipment provided by the company on previous procurement contracts; and also the National Transportation Communications for ITS protocol (NTCIP). New York City’s original Phase I and Phase II traffic control procurement contracts were also awarded to U.S. Traffic. As a result, the company has already provided over 8,900 controller cabinets, from 2001 through to 2010. The NYC-DOT awarded the company the phase III contract, based on its previous performance in delivering traffic control technology, and its responsiveness in meeting the department’s technical requirements.

VP of operations for US Traffic and Peek Traffic Corporation, Mike Hobbs, noted, “This contract marks the third award in a row by the New York City DOT to our organization; this last phase being the largest traffic control contract ever awarded in North America, and is based upon our demonstrated expertise and ability to provide the latest technology in intersection control.” Rolando Garcia, chief operations officer for the Signal Group, which purchased Peek Traffic and US Traffic in 2008, stated, “We are very pleased to have this opportunity to continue our partnership with New York City; affirming our commitment to offer the best, most sustainable solutions in traffic technologies.”
