Installation of Active Traffic Management Systems
Spur 527 to Beltway 8 South
Installation of an Active Traffic Management System on IH69 was a key recommendation from the Rider 42 mitigation study. This project will provide the necessary ITS coverage along the project corridor improving travel mobility, incident management, safety, and travel time reliability for the TxDOT Houston District (TranStar) region. This improvement project will address one of the most congested corridors in Texas by improving emergency response, reducing travel times, and increasing passenger throughput with the addition of ITS sensors, monitoring equipment, and devices that help the public make travel decisions.
This project will involve additional instrumentation of IH69 from Spur 527 to Beltway 8 South. Specifically, this project will provide an additional 45 closed circuit pan tilt zoom cameras, 11 fixed closed circuit cameras, 46 radar-based vehicle sensing devices, 7 travel time readers, 5 graphical route information panels, 20 dynamic lane control locations, 18 full color matrix dynamic message signs, 2 weather stations, the upgrade of 12 ramp meters, and approximately 15 miles of additional fiber for duct bank and interconnection.
This project will improve real-time incident detection, responsiveness and notification; and also improve real-time monitoring and reporting capabilities of recurring congestion. The additional instrumentation to the existing system will enhance reliability, redundancy, and continuity of operations.

This project will provide the necessary expanded coverage of existing incident management, congestion management, and traveler information systems infrastructure for the TxDOT Houston District, Houston TranStar partnership
Per HGAC Congestion Management Process Update, published January 2015, IH 69 northbound and southbound are on the CMP Network Segment List.
This project will provide real-time incident detection, responsiveness, and notification to facility users by messaging on Dynamic Message Signs, Graphic Route Information Panels, and Lane Control Signs.
The proposed system would tie into Houston TranStar, the region's Transportation Management and Emergency Management center. Other than the four government agencies that comprise the consortium, numerous local government agencies have agreements for sharing resources at Houston TranStar.
The proposed system would include additional fiber optic communications connections, supplementing current network redundancy.
