The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has selected Dewberry to provide engineering services for the new traffic signal system for the Greenville metropolitan area.
Under the agreement, the firm will create detailed plans, specifications, and estimates for the rehabilitation and expansion of the city’s computerized traffic signal system. The system will consist of up to 155 intersections and 24 closed-circuit television cameras, utilizing a new redundant circuit Ethernet communications system composed of 58 miles of single-mode fiber optic communications cable.
The project will include new 2070 controllers and associated cabinets, installation of new traffic control center and signal shop equipment, emergency vehicle preemption, and advanced 360-degree video detection for automated turning movement traffic data collection at 43 intersections.
“With nearly three decades of experience working with NCDOT and having managed several projects in Greenville over the past 20 years, I’m excited to continue this relationship and partner it with Dewberry’s expanding transportation team in the southeast,” Dewberry senior associate and project manager Todd Brooks said in a statement.
According to Dewberry, the $1.8-million project is expected to be completed in 2019.
