Telvent has been selected by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) to implement three all-electronic tolling (AET) systems through the Washington State Roadway Toll Systems Project. The project includes the implementation, maintenance and operation of three AET systems in the state’s Puget Sound area, which comprises: the SR-99 bored tunnel in Seattle that is scheduled to open in 2015; the new SR 520 floating bridge that is targeted to open in 2014; and the planned I-405 express toll lanes between Bellevue and Lynnwood.
As the systems provider, the company will implement its ‘SmartMobility Tolling System’ and extend its Remote Operations and Maintenance System (ROMS), which is currently operational on the state’s SR 520 bridge. The advanced technology allows operators to accurately monitor toll systems operations and maintenance management, in order to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the toll system. Tolling is a key funding tool for many state transportation projects and AET can help reduce traffic congestion, while providing drivers the convenience of traveling at free flow speeds.
Anouncing the contract award, Telvent’s chairman and CEO, Ignacio Gonzalez, commented, “After the successful implementation of the ORT system for Washington State’s SR 520 bridge project, we are is excited to again partner with WSDOT on this important new project that will benefit both systems operators and drivers. We are confident that our all-electronic tolling systems will allow for efficient tolling operations.”
