Tallahassee Regional Transportation Management Center (RTMC)
Kimley-Horn was selected by the City of Tallahassee, Florida to serve 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 traffic management system that controls approximately 350 traffic signals in the Tallahassee area with more signals being added every year. The City operates and maintains signals owned by the City of Tallahassee, Leon County, Gadsen County, Florida State University, and the FDOT. RTMC personnel can monitor over 80% of these traffic signals with more than 90 operator controlled closed-circuit television cameras. The signals and cameras communicate with TATMS utilizing over 170 miles of fiber optic cable owned by the City.
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 instrumentation and implementation of 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); and the development of 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.
