ATMS/ATIS SYSTEM EVOLUTION IN PHOENIX DETECTION, COMMUNICATIONS AND DESIGN/BUILD

On September 27, 1995, the first 29 centerline miles of the Phoenix Freeway Management System became fully operational. This is the first large scale Advanced Traffic Management System and Advanced Traveler Information System deployed in Arizona. Two (2) additional projects are already underway to expand the breadth and technology limits of this system. The first project extends the design along 12.5 centerline miles of freeway, and adds non-intrusive detection technology to incident management. The second project contains a higher degree of innovations, and will extend the control limits an additional 16 centerline miles. This paper describes each of the projects, the concerns, technical and institutional obstacles to procurement of each system, discusses the innovations and repeatable provisions of each contracting type, and documents the objectives reached by each method.
