Signal Corp. of Fairfax, Va., announced July 15 it has been awarded a three-year, $50 million contract from the Federal Highway Administration to support traffic monitoring and management in the nation's most traffic-congested areas.
The contract calls for deploying sensor network systems and infrastructure in 25 major metropolitan areas nationwide. The deal supports a public-private partnership among the department, various state departments of transportation and Signal's partner, Mobility Technologies Inc. of Wayne, Pa.
The task order was awarded under Signal's ITOP II contract with the Transportation Department under the Intelligent Transportation Joint Program Office in the FHA.
