DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) has received a contract from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to provide construction administration and inspection services for the Route 18 Traffic Signal System project in East Brunswick and New Brunswick, New Jersey. The Route 18 project consists of the installation of new Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) equipment and upgrades to the existing traffic signal system.
Jacobs’ construction administration and inspection services include the installation of image and radar detectors, Controlled Traffic Signal System (CTSS) cameras and fiber optic cable at 23 locations along the Route 18 corridor. The project is scheduled for completion by November 2017.
Jacobs will oversee a traffic study to be conducted prior to the start of any work to determine daily volumes at each traffic signal, average corridor travel time and average intersection delay. The findings will be compared with the information obtained when the system is integrated and operational. Once the equipment is installed and integrated into the NJDOT Statewide System, a verification and validation plan will be executed and testing performed.
“Jacobs has worked alongside NJDOT on many projects over the past 60 years,” said Jacobs Senior Vice President Buildings and Infrastructure Randy Pierce. “This experience, combined with our proven capability in transport engineering services including ITS, positions us well to help NJDOT meet the challenges and opportunities of this rapidly changing technological landscape.”
