Uptown Houston ITS IDIQ
Walter P Moore serves as the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) General Engineering Consultant for the Uptown Houston Development Authority which was created in 1999 to address the growth challenges in this area. As one of the largest business districts in the country, the UDA sought to make significant mobility improvements to provide easier travel for business professionals as well as those that visit the high-end shopping that the Galleria and local boutiques provide in the area. Since UDA’s inception, we have been involved in the planning, development, design, implementation, operations and maintenance of Uptown’s advanced traffic management system (ATMS) that consists of signal interconnect and optimization, dynamic message signs, fiber optic communications, changeable lane assignment arrows, video surveillance cameras, and control center requirements. WPM continues to deliver on-going, on-call ITS services including integration of new technologies and features; traffic safety vehicle procurement; implementation of GIS-based vehicle tracking system; and technology assessments.
