A few examples of our work
We have successfully completed projects and studies of all sizes in both lead and subconsultant roles. This includes assignments ranging from municipal traffic and parking to major travel corridors spanning multiple jurisdictions and requiring environmental documentation to secure federal and state funding. We take great pride in helping our clients plan, design, and implement their goals. The projects showcased here are only a few that we’ve completed within our six major service areas.
IH 39 Early ITS Facilities Design - Prairie Hill to Badger Interchange
TranSmart Technologies, as a subconsultant to AECOM, prepared plans and performed other technical and engineering tasks required for the early deployment of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) equipment for the “I-39 Major (Mega) Project” under design between the Illinois state line and the Badger Interchange (I-94/STH 30) in Madison, WI.
Traffic data collection activities included 14-hour intersection turning movement counts at twenty-seven (27)intersections, a total of fifty-two (52), 48-hour tube counts, and two (2) location specific speed studies. The ITS plan preparation included deployment of a comprehensive system of CCTV cameras, microwave detectors, Bluetooth readers, dynamic message signs, and third party traffic information services. This system was used to monitor the 45-mile corridor and select locations for the alternative routes identified for use during construction. Over 78 individual equipment placement and locations sites were identified for the ITS, which included hard-wired and wireless communication components, and was operational
Illinois Statewide ITS Architecture and Strategic Plan Update
TranSmart Technologies, Inc. was selected to facilitate an update to the Illinois Statewide ITS Architecture and Strategic Plan. Tasks include stakeholder needs identification, updates of the Statewide ITS Architecture and Statewide ITS Strategic Plan, a communications infrastructure inventory and assessment, and technical assistance to help IDOT Districts and regional MPOs to update existing and create new regional ITS architectures. The project includes extensive outreach and stakeholder involvement, including two stakeholder committees, webinars, surveys, interviews, newsletters, a project website, and approximately thirty interactive workshops held throughout the State of Illinois.
Illinois Tollway – I-90 Jane Addams Memorial Tollway Smart Corridor and ITS Planning & Design
TranSmart Technologies, Inc. provided professional services as part of the BV3 team (a joint venture of Benesch and V3), the Design Corridor Manager, for the planning and design of a smart corridor concept focused primarily on that portion of the Tollway corridor east of the Elgin toll plaza. Work tasks include a development of design concepts and renderings for various operational alternatives, including Active Traffic Management (ATM) and a Managed Lane, and assessments of ITS equipment and components to determine compatibility with Tollway requirements. This analysis is described in the “Smart Corridor Vision” document that TranSmart prepared.
TranSmart led the development of the Concept of Operations for the ATM deployment under the Illinois Tollway's CDM Smith Traffic Engineering team. As a subconsultant to Parsons, TranSmart is part of the construction management team overseeing the I-90 SMART Corridor implementation. Under the contract with the Illinois Tollway's Traffic Engineer, TranSmart is undergoing a Before and After Study of the I-90 ATM.
