|City of Downey – Firestone Blvd ITS Design|
• Fiber Optic Communications Design- Gigabit Ethernet Technology
ADVANTEC was the first traffic engineering consultant to design a fiber optic communications network using Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) technology in Los Angeles County. Besides communications design, ADVANTEC also designed traffic signal upgrades with video detection, as well as traffic signal timing and coordination for approximately 13 intersections along a 3-mile section of Firestone Boulevard, a major east-west arterial, in the City of Downey, California.
For the signal system improvement design, we first developed and prioritized the list of hardware, firmware, and software for traffic signal system and communications system modifications and upgrades that would enable immediate integration with those for Lakewood Boulevard, which is a major north-south arterial within the City. We then prepared the PS&E package for the upgrade design for all signals, including video detection at all 13 intersections. Through the fiber-optic network, all video images are sent back to the Traffic Engineer’s Office at the City Hall for viewing.
