TransCore, LP Key Developments

TransCore Wins $30 Million, 3-Year Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles Customer Service Center Technology Upgrade Contract

After a competitive bid process, TransCore was awarded a $30 million, three-year base term contract with multiple extension options to update and expand the Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and E-ZPass(R) Customer Service Centers. The system will be installed in parallel with the existing service center operations while relocating to a new DMV facility in downtown Dover. Project completion is expected by first quarter 2014.

TransCore, LP Wins $34 Million Contract to Design and Build I-66 Active Traffic Management System

Virginia Department of Transportation selected TransCore, LP, a unit of Roper Industries, to design and build its I-66 Active Traffic Management system on Northern Virginia's main highway into the District of Columbia. The $34 million contract is 90% federally funded and will support 34 miles of highway from the District of Columbia to Gainesville US-29 in Prince William County. The project is scheduled to be operational by the fall of 2014. The system will use such techniques as lane control signal systems, adaptive ramp metering, enhanced detection and camera systems, lane management systems, and queue warning systems. Active traffic management systems have been used throughout Europe for the last decade, but this is a relatively new concept in the United States. Benefits of the I-66 ATM system for motorists include: Dynamic message and lane control signing advising motorists on incidents and delays by providing direction on lanes that are usable, and guidance on merging traffic; Expanded use of shoulder lanes regardless of time of day in response to incidents and to manage traffic; Improved monitoring of the roadway to provide quicker response by transportation, safety and law enforcement personnel.
