The ITS Section is responsible for managing fiber-optic communications network, Transportation management Center (TMC) Operations and Traffic Signal Timing Operations. The jointly operated TMC by the FDOT and the County serves as a nerve center for monitoring and managing traffic operations on the freeway and the arterial roadways within the County. The TMC enables real time control and monitoring of 750 traffic signals, 115 CCTV installations and other ITS devices connected over 500 plus miles of fiber-optic communications network. The TMC also supports the Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSM&O) initiative by the FDOT, where several select segments of the arterials are monitored for recurring and non-recurring congestion problems through real time collection and compilation of travel times and speeds with the Bluetooth transponders.
Signal Timing: The Traffic Signal Timing Engineers provide signal and system timing for over 1000 traffic signals, including the 750 intersections that are online, and respond to citizen requests, incidents, detours and other congestion related problems.
