Tallahassee Regional Transportation Management Center (RTMC)
Kimley-Horn served as program manager for the new Tallahassee Regional Transportation Management Center (RTMC) and the associated Freeway Management System (FMS) and Telecommunications Infrastructure (TI).
The 100,000-square-foot RTMC serves as the control center for the state-of-the art Tallahassee Advanced Traffic Management System (TATMS), the system that controls 350 traffic signals in the Tallahassee area. The City operates and maintains signals owned by the City of Tallahassee, Leon County, Gadsden County, Florida State University, and the FDOT. RTMC personnel can monitor more than 80% of these traffic signals with 90 operator-controlled closed-circuit television cameras. The signals and cameras communicate with TATMS utilizing 170 miles of fiber optic cable.
As the City’s program manager on this project, Kimley-Horn provided a broad range of program and system manager services to facilitate the successful implementation of the RTMC in conjunction with the Freeway Management System elements and associated Telecommunications Infrastructure along a 19-mile stretch of I-10 in Leon and Gadsden counties. The scope of work includes program management and technical services—design criteria development, procurement services, post-design services, and construction phase support services—the development of a comprehensive program and funding plan, and a Project System Engineering Management Plan. A concept of operations was also developed as part of the Project System Engineering Management Plan.
