Citywide Fiber Optic Project

The work included upgrading a portion of our existing traffic signal interconnect system from older multi-mode fiber optic to new single mode fiber optic cable. These upgrades will allow the City to transmit information from existing traffic signal cabinets to the City’s server, which shall include alerts when the traffic signals are not functioning properly. These upgrades will also allow us to make adjustments to the traffic signal timing remotely from the City’s server to improve traffic flow on some of the City’s busiest corridors. The project was funded by a Highway Safety Improvement Program Grant (HSIP) with a total award of $904,900.
