Miami-Dade County Wins 2018 NACo Achievement Award for Adaptive Signal Control Technology Solution

Econolite today announced that Miami-Dade County received a National
Association of Counties (NACo) Achievement Award in Information
Technology for its adaptive signal control technology upgrade along the
NW 36th Street corridor. http://explorer.naco.org/cf_naco/cffiles_web/awards/Award_program.cfm?SEARCHID=107677

The deployment of adaptive signal control along 10 intersections of the
corridor is part of the County’s larger infrastructure modernization
program that leverages Econolite’s leading-edge Intelligent
Transportation System (ITS) technologies to install Smart Signals at 300
intersections along 12 corridors.

“New technologies that improve our quality of life have always been a
key milestone of our administration,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor
Carlos A. Gimenez. “The improvements in time savings and reduced
congestion along NW 36th Street are examples of how Smart
Signals and adaptive signal control technologies are helping Miami-Dade
successfully address future transportation challenges today.”

Miami-Dade County’s adaptive signal control deployment along NW 36th
Street between 71st and 84th avenues leverage
Econolite’s signal controllers, detection sensors, Centracs software
with adaptive signal control, and a Bluetooth-based travel time system
that precisely measures traffic performance. The ITS solution
demonstrated a 10 percent average reduction in travel time along that
corridor and includes Connected Vehicle capabilities.

“Miami-Dade County’s adoption of leading-edge traffic signal
optimization is a testament to its forward-looking vision,” said
Econolite President and COO Abbas Mohaddes. “The ITS solution they have
deployed lays the groundwork for a Smart and Connected City, which helps
ensure a thriving and sustainable future for County residents.”
