Integration of Traffic Signals on Business 90, FM 1942, and FM 2100
Business 90, FM 1942, and FM 2100
Business 90 from Sheldon Rd to FM 2100; FM 1942 from US 90 to Indian Shores Rd; FM 2100 from US 90 to Bohemian Hall Rd.
This project will provide necessary interconnection to existing traffic signals as well as remote connection to Houston TranStar's network. This improvement project will expand TxDOT - Houston Districts current connectivity to traffic signals. These fiber connections will enhance reliability and redundancy to TranStar's regional network. These connections will provide remote communication to allow data collection, signal timing modifications, and signal monitoring making maintenance more efficient while promoting safety.
The project will involve the installation of fiber optic communications cable on Business 90 from Sheldon Road to FM 2100, on FM 1942 from US 90 to Indian Shores Road, and on FM 2100 from US 90 to Bohemian. This project will provide real-time traffic monitoring and real-time signal adjustments during incidents. It will also allow for the collection of data to determine when adjustments should be made to address recurring and non-recurring congestion.
This project will improve signal timing, responsiveness, notification, and data collection. It will contribute to identifying recurring and non-recurring congestion, creating reliable travel times to improve safety, efficiency, and improving the quality of life for road users experiencing delays.

This Traffic Signal Integration project will provide remote management of signals along the corridor in the event of an incident or emergency on the corridor or adjacent corridors. This would facilitate immediate timing changes or other modifications to the signal system.
Per HGAC Congestion Management Process Update, published January 2015, FM 2100 southbound is on the CMP Network Segment List.
The proposed signal integration 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
This project would provide communications redundancy between BW8 and US 90. Traffic signal integration will provide remote management of traffic signals during all emergency events, allowing access to modify timing, patterns, and data collection even when the signal may not be physically accessible.
