Drive Engineering has emerged as a leader in the design, deployment, testing and integration of ITS technologies and solutions for the following:
Drive led a team of consultants for the design and deployment of an ITS network along the PA Turnpike's Northeast Extension in Eastern Pennsylvania. In addition to overseeing the overall ITS design effort for this project, Drive provided project management, surveyed all ITS sites and developed the ITS design and plans, specifications and estimate (PS&E) package which included traffic control plans, erosion and sediment control plan and ITS plans. Key components of this project include the design of 12 Dynamic Message Systems (DMS) and five Closed Circuit Television Cameras (CCTV). In addition, Drive provided construction consultation services during the deployment phase of the project.
Drive Engineering assisted the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission in updating the current ITS and communications systems maintenance contract through the Request for Proposals process. The existing contract provided maintenance services primarily for ITS and communications systems; however, operational deficiencies, service gaps, and a rapidly changing technology environment necessitated improvement of contract requirements.
The Drive team developed ITS plans, specifications and estimates for the SR 202, Sections 510 and 520 in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and PennDOT guidelines. Additionally, Drive developed the design for the deployment of traffic control devices such as closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, dynamic message signs (DMS), bluetooth readers, and traffic signals.
Drive provided ITS engineering services in support of the Greater Richmond Over-Height Vehicle Detour Routing System. The project included developing ITS plans for over-height vehicle sensors, static signage, dynamic message signs, and associated power/communications infrastructure. Drive produced preliminary location plans for the project area, which included I-85, I-95, I-295, and I-64 in Richmond, VA.
Drive assisted the GCRTA in the development and deployment of a wireless communication system in downtown Cleveland. This project included performing a constructability review of the proposed wireless infrastructure deployment locations and developing mounting details for the antennas.
Drive worked with PennDOT in the development of ITS PS&E documents for I-70, Section K10. The team developed comprehensive communication schematics to support ITS devices installed and/or relocated. The communications methods included fiber optic cable, ethernet, and wireless radios/repeaters. ITS devices included closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, dynamic message signs (DMS), and wireless repeaters. In addition, Drive developed the design-build special provision to maintain existing ITS uptime during roadway construction.
Drive developed an ITS PS&E package for the deployment ITS devices as a part of the I-476/MacDade Boulevard Interchange Reconstruction, in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) guidelines. The team developed the comprehensive ITS construction documents for the deployment of traffic control devices such as closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, dynamic message signs (DMS), a ramp meter and traffic signals.
