Fry Road/Cypress Rose Hill Road ITS Infrastructure Project
Fry Road/Cypress Rose Hill Road
Clay Road to Louetta Road/Huffmeister Road
Northwest/West Harris County is experience increased development and population growth due to the region's vibrant economy. Increasing traffic as a result of this growth is causing degradation to the traffic operations on Harris County roadways. Harris County has identified Fry Road (from Clay Road to Huffmeister Road) as a heavily traveled arterial that would substantially benefit from a combination of traffic signal modernization, fiber optic interconnect network and real time traffic monitoring.
The proposed improvement will be the installation of ITS infrastructure along the Fry Road/Cypress Rose Hill Road Corridor, from Clay Road to Louetta Road/Huffmeister Road.
The proposed improvements along the corridor will enhance efforts to reduce motorist delay, congestion and improve air quality. The installation of ITS infrastructure along the corridor provide intersection capacity improvements, remote monitoring and adjustment of signal operation and synchornization. Real time monitoring system will provide the public with average speed and travel time of vehicles along roadway sections. Also, collected data will be instrumental in the ability to develop ongoing transportation performance measures.

Project is for the installation of ITS infrastructure along a major arterial where ROW acquisition and Environmental Assessment/ Categorical Exclusion is not anticipated. Therefore, the project is anticipated to be ready for let once design is completed, approximately 10 months from HGAC approval of the the project.

CCTV cameras will be installed at major intersections. With the addition of the fiber optic communications network, the cameras will be integrated into TranStar's CTMS and be utilized by TranStar operators for incident management and surveillance.
The project crosses US 290.
Intersections will be equipped with a real time monitoring device. With the addition of the fiber optic communications network, the real time monitoring device will be integrated into TranStar's CTMS and be able to provide extensive information of value to motorists (e.g. speed maps, travel times, etc.) and traffic management operators.
While no plans are currently in place to implement EVP systems, Harris County has allowed Emergency Service Districts to implement a GPS-based EVP system on County maintained roadways with adherence to Harris County system requirements.
