Okaloosa County Computerized Signal System, Phase 1

Client: FDOT, District 3 Traffic Operations
Location: Okaloosa County, FL
Size: 46 Intersections
Service: Transportation & Mobility

Highlights:
Contact Staff: Mark T. Llewellyn Sr., P.E.
 

This project is the Okaloosa County Computerized Signal System, Phase 1 implementation. Genesis designed new signal timings for 46 intersections following installation of the new BiTrans central software, 2070 Lite controllers, underground fiber optic communications, and stand alone CCTV and DMS systems. Data collected ‘before’ and ‘after’ system implementation was also provided to evaluate system performance.

A comparison of these studies of the overall system performance and savings to the general motoring public, yield a 32% reduction in average travel times.

Initial signal timings were developed and submitted in a separate report to FDOT District 3 Traffic Operations and Okaloosa County Signal Maintenance staff. These initial timing patterns were based on turning movement counts and field conditions. Timings were derived through an initial evaluation using the Synchro model and then implemented in the field. Final signal timing data were then optimized and manually fine tuned, to provide the most efficient operations and timing parameters.
