Miami-Dade County Wins 2018 NACo Achievement Award for Adaptive Signal Control Technology Solution

Econolite ITS solution helps reduce congestion along NW 36th St. corridor


Anaheim, Calif., June 18, 2018 – Econolite today announced that Miami-Dade County received a National Association of Counties (NACo) Achievement Award in Information Technology for its adaptive signal control technology upgrade along the NW 36th Street corridor.

The deployment of adaptive signal control along 10 intersections of the corridor is part of the County’s larger infrastructure modernization program that leverages Econolite’s leading-edge Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technologies to install Smart Signals at 300 intersections along 12 corridors.

“New technologies that improve our quality of life have always been a key milestone of our administration,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “The improvements in time savings and reduced congestion along NW 36th Street are examples of how Smart Signals and adaptive signal control technologies are helping Miami-Dade successfully address future transportation challenges today.”

Miami-Dade County’s adaptive signal control deployment along NW 36th Street between 71st and 84th avenues leverage Econolite’s signal controllers, detection sensors, Centracs software with adaptive signal control, and a Bluetooth-based travel time system that precisely measures traffic performance. The ITS solution demonstrated a 10 percent average reduction in travel time along that corridor and includes Connected Vehicle capabilities.

Miami-Dade County’s adoption of leading-edge traffic signal optimization is a testament to its forward-looking vision,” said Econolite President and COO Abbas Mohaddes. “The ITS solution they have deployed lays the groundwork for a Smart and Connected City, which helps ensure a thriving and sustainable future for County residents.”
