The City of Dover plans to procure Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures (ATSPM) from McCain to optimize and validate traffic signal operations at key intersections along coordinated corridors. Dover’s objectives with this deployment include; support for traffic and pedestrian mobility, interoperability between agencies, environmental objectives, and an opportunity to increase awareness and service related to traffic signal operations. Transparity SPM is the latest addition to the City’s suite of McCain traffic signals, operational software and analysis software.
The innovative McCain ATSPM solution will provide the city with strategic upgrades to the core infrastructure and provide measurable results in roadway efficiency, safety, air quality and mobility for area residents. ATSPMs are transforming signal timing and operations practices by adding high-resolution data-logging capability to existing traffic signal infrastructure and data analysis techniques. This cost-effective technology provides agencies with the information needed to manage signal performance proactively to support safety and mobility goals.
McCain will be working together with long-time East Coast partner, Coastal Traffic, Inc. and signal contractor,Electric Light Company, Inc. Coastal Traffic has been the integrator between the system hardware installed by Electric Light and the hardware/software supplied by McCain. Together the team has provided a robust city-wide system that has been able to grow with the ever-increasing demands on traffic flow through the streets of the City of Dover.
Deploying Transparity SPM will open up tools for the City of Dover to proactively manage signal performance and benefit from the seamless integration with McCain’s flagship Traffic Management System, Transparity TMS. For more than 8 years, the footprint of McCain services and solutions has increased to meet the growing needs of the City. McCain looks forward to continuing their long history of working with the City of Dover to relieve traffic congestion, and reduce commute times, thereby reducing fuel consumption and vehicle emissions which results in a win for drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, and the environment.
