HEARING REQUIRED:  No Hearing Required

 

SUMMARY:

                                          

The City has requested $57,250 from FDOT to purchase Video Detection Equipment for the following intersections that are State owned within City limits:

 

                     E. Garden Street and S. Palafox Street

                     W. Garden Street and S. “A” Street

                     W. Cervantes Street and N. “A” Street

                     S. Pace Boulevard and Barrancas Avenue

 

More specifically, this equipment will provide improved vehicular detection of traffic at the intersections versus placement of the in-ground conducive loops that are cut into the pavement surface, which is considered dated-technology.  With this advanced technology, trouble shooting the traffic signals/intersections will be expedited and traffic lanes will not have to be closed to perform any kind of repair.  This results in maintenance cost savings to the City for each location and less impact and delay to the traveling public. These locations are also located within the FY17 Street Rehabilitation Project (groups 7, 8, and 9) area and would result in a cost savings to each group due to the omission of new traffic loops placed in the pavement, because of this updated technology.
