Having prepared and reviewed dozens of ITS plans sets, including specifications, and lightning protection and surge suppression systems designs, for many clients, VIBE understands how to prepare design projects, and cost estimates that provide our clients with the highest quality. We have designed projects that have used the design/bid/build, design/build, system manager and construction manager at risk processes. VIBE understands the differences between designing a Freeway Management System (FMS) and an Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS). While there are many similarities, the differences create a need for a real understanding of the unique features of each. The introduction of traffic controllers and urban conditions typical of an ATMS make it much more demanding in design that a FMS.

Representative Projects:

  • SR 686 ATMS – VIBE’s staff prepared the PD&E documents for this project. It included 10 miles of new fiber optic cable, 10 new CCTV cameras, 5 DMSs, and 32 detectors.
  • I-10/US 61 ITS Phase 3 Design/Build – VIBE staff prepared the PS&E documents for this ITS project, which included both interstate and arterial roadways. The project included 30 miles of fiber optic cable, 40 new CCTV cameras mounted on new poles and existing mast arms, 12 DMSs, and 11 microwave detectors. Two new hub facilities were also designed.
  • Jacksonville Phase 8 FMS – VIBE staff were responsible for the preparation of PS&E documents for the FMS project. The system, on I-295 around the City, included 14 miles of fiber optic cable, 23 CCTV cameras, 9 DMSs, 37 detectors, 4 LPRs, and 3 RWISs.
  • SR 64 (Manatee Avenue) from SR 789 to Perico Bay Boulevard - Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District One, Manatee County, Florida - As a subconsultant, VIBE will provide ITS support services for the design of the new Anna Maria Island Bridge that will replace the existing bridge with a high-level fixed bridge. For this project, VIBE will be responsible for evaluating the existing ATMS that is within the project limits, redesigning all ATMS infrastructure that may be impacted by the construction of the new bridge, and expanding the system to include additional devices. This includes devices such as Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras, Microwave Vehicle Detection Systems (MVDSs), and fiber optic cable.
  • SR 684 from SR 789 to 123rd Street W - Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District One, Manatee County, Florida - As a subconsultant, VIBE will provide ITS support services for the new Cortez Bridge. For this project, VIBE will be responsible for reviewing the existing ATMS devices and determining the impact of the new bridge. There are currently a CCTV camera and an MVDS in close proximity to the bridge.
