Gainesville ATMS: A Regional Success! October 29, 2012 Matthew Weisman, PE ITS Operations Engineer - City of Gainesville, Fl 2012 Transpo – Bonita Springs
Outline What is the City responsible for? How we are/were funded Latest Regional Incentives Interstate 75 Deployment Outside City Limits District 2 ITS District 5 ITS
Traffic Management System The City of Gainesville maintains Traffic signals School beacons Flashing beacons ITS Includes Unincorporated Alachua County University of Florida Smaller Cities in Alachua County
Funding Partnerships Capital Funding Methodology: City, County, MTPO, FDOT and University Staff worked together to develop a funding methodology for this project. Maintenance Funding: Inter-local agreements with other County agencies FDOT D2
Funding Commitments to Date Agency City County U.F. FDOT Fair Share 25.1% ($ 3.6 mil) 22.7% ($ 3.3 mil) 3.9% + $ 3.2 mil = ($ 3.8 mil) 50.0% ($ 9.1 mil) Committed $ 5.0 mil $ 2.2 mil $ 3.8 mil $ 9.1 mil
Phasing Costs Phase I Phase II Phase III Phase IV Total $ 7.5 million $ 5.8 million $ 4.1 million $ 820,000 $ 18.2 million
Original ATMS Scope New cabinets and controllers at EVERY intersection Communications backbone PTZ Cameras Construction (installing cabinets etc…) Consulting services Software (ATMS software, Cameras, signal timing…) TMC Building Equipment for the TMC Emergency vehicle preemption/priority
Interstate 75 Original Scope Lacked I-75: Original intention of the $18.2 M was for Gainesvilles arterial street network and not the interstate. However, not having access to the interstate often impeded our ability to properly manage arterials during I-75 incidents.
Interstate 75 Local Agency VS FDOT: Initially, CoG requested permission from FDOT to permit traffic camera poles near the main interchanges in Gainesville Request was politely denied. FDOT is the only agency that can permit on the interstate.
Interstate 75 Local Agency VS FDOT: Begun petitioning District IIs ITS office for interstate cameras shortly afterwards.
Interstate 75 THE DESIGN! Original plan attempted to use existing cantilever and light pole structures on the interstate to keep costs down.
Interstate 75 THE DESIGN! CoG conducted its own site surveys to confirm wireless connectivity and good visuals.
Interstate 75 THE DESIGN! Included cameras from the south end of Paynes Prairie to Alachua, Fl
Interstate 75 THE DESIGN! Roughly 20 miles from first camera in the south of the Prairie to the Alachua US441 interchange
Spring into action! FDOT agreed to pay their push button contractor to plant ten new poles on the interstate. FDOT also agreed to start supplying replacement back up ITS equipment to CoG. CoG was responsible for everything else. As no other infrastructure was going on the interstate, these 10 camera poles had to communicate over wireless and use solar power.
Interstate 75 Spring into action! Sign cantilever idea went bust. Photocells brought on too many problems. Post January 29 th design kept two cantilever structures, Alachua (US441) and Williston Rd (SR121) interchanges.
Interstate 75 Spring into action! In order to use existing cantilevers, FDOT policy was waived and FDOT issued CoG permits to construct conduit to these existing signs.
Interstate 75 FDOT plants poles 67 (or 55 tall) poles
Interstate 75 Spring into action! Solar system was designed to our specific equipment
Interstate 75 Spring into action! PoE radios were used to shoot back to our fiber.
Interstate 75 Wireless on the Prairie PoE radios were used to shoot back to our fiber.
Connection to D2 Gainesville Traffic Operations has recently become a member of the Florida Lambda Rail! This will allow a 1GIGE connection to FDOT D2 Jacksonville with possibility of expanding to other FDOT districts.
Expansion to D5 CoG has replaced an old I-Florida PTZ camera in Marion County. Exit 368 is the last NB exit before entering Alachua County Communication will be maintained via a cellular modem over the Verizon network. Verizon provides the City with a static IP. The modem uses an embedded VPN to connect into our network.
