This stretch of road, from SR 145 to Fig Avenue in poor condition due to heavy agricultural traffic, was thought to be in need of a full depth reclamation. However, investigation from the County’s materials lab showed that the the strong structural section made it an ideal candidate for a Cold-In-Place (CIP) Recycling technique. As the project proceeded through the design, it was determined

Safety or Intelligent Transportation System Projects

City of Monterey Adaptive Traffic Control System

Location Monterey, CA City or County Responsible for Project City of Monterey Category Safety or Intelligent Transportation System Projects Author Andrea Renny Organization City of Monterey Phone 831-646-3921 Supporting Documentation https://savecaliforniastreets.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/2023-01-31_63d985edae313_SCOOTATCSFlyer.pdf Project Description Adaptive Traffic Control Systems (ATCS) are the latest technology for improving traffic flow by better synchronizing and controlling traffic signals. ATCS use vehicle detection and artificial intelligence software to respond accurately and immediately to real-time traffic conditions. This enables the system to progress traffic through a corridor with few or no stops, resulting in less fuel consumed and fewer emissions, and improves travel time, quality of life, and safety. Purchasing an ATCS does not fit the typical competitive bid process. A competitive process to select an ATCS based solely on cost did not serve the needs of the City. After evaluating 12 different vendors with the assistance of a consultant, the City identified one vendor that met
