|Innovation||Adaptive Signal Control (ASC)|
|Award Fiscal Year||2015|
|Description||The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) and the Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) will install ASC controllers and associated technology at eight signalized intersections along approximately 1.5 miles of Airport Road, a busy (30,000 ADT) 4-lane arterial state roadway adjacent to T.F. Green Airport in the City of Warwick, RI. The RIAC will implement the deployment of the ASC technology as part of a locally administered project. The RIDOT will work in partnership with RIAC to coordinate and approve the design and purchase of the ASC technology. After construction RIDOT will be responsible for overseeing maintenance and operations as well as monitoring and assessment of the ASC system. The RIDOT intends use the experience it garners from this first-ever deployment of ASC in RI to help plan and program the deployment of the technology elsewhere across the state and to potentially adopt ASC as a standard practice.|
|Partner||Rhode Island Department of Transportation|
|Duration/Status||Project design was completed in late Summer 2015, and ASC system deployment was advertised for contractor bid in September 2015. ASC system installation and training expected to be complete by Spring 2016, with RIDOT monitoring and assessment to take place thereafter.|
