AMG provided Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) with strategic transportation planning and traffic engineering services to develop the Countywide Fiber Master Plan and prepare a successful One Bay Area Grant (OBAG) 3 grant application to design and construct the $30 million Countywide Smart Signals project. This CCTA-sponsored project will upgrade existing traffic signal systems at 326 intersections, including controllers and communication systems, to provide interconnectivity throughout the 19 cities/towns and unincorporated communities. The goals of the project are to improve safety, optimize mobility, prepare for emerging transportation technologies, and advance Smart Cities.

The project aims to unify traffic signal systems and facilitate the seamless exchange of real-time data among agencies. This integration will be pivotal in optimizing traffic flow, enhancing safety, and expediting emergency response times. Coupled with various technological enhancements, this system will empower the implementation of video analytics, prioritize transit lanes, integrate bicycle signals and phasing, optimize signal control, and employ prioritization strategies. These measures collectively seek to encourage the use of public transit by reducing delays and transit vehicle travel times.

The amount of OBAG 3 funding nominated for this project is $26,555,142. The project is currently in the final design phase.
