Enabling/Regulating Authority

Background Discussion

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Manatee County entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) for the purchase and installation of BlueTOAD travel time monitoring equipment, Ethernet switches, and the Wavetronix vehicle detection software and support hardware. (Attached)

The BlueTOAD travel time monitoring equipment will be installed at sixty (60) locations and the Ethernet switches will be installed at fifteen (15) locations throughout the County as listed in Exhibit A of the Memorandum of Agreement.

Wavetronix vehicle detection software and support hardware will be installed at the Regional Traffic Management Center (RTMC).

FDOT has allocated $550,000 in its Five Year Work Program for this project. FDOT has also issued a purchase request for the BlueTOAD travel time monitoring equipment, Ethernet switches, and the Wavetronix vehicle detection software and support hardware.  Delivery of all equipment is expected by the end of 2016.

Pursuant to the Memorandum of Agreement, Manatee County will be responsible for installing the equipment, hardware and software using County personnel and equipment.  Staff does not anticipate additional capital cost to the County.

This equipment, hardware, and software will provide the RTMC with additional tools to monitor traffic incidents and congestion, as well as assist in making informed decisions in implementing targeted solutions.

After the Memorandum of Agreement was executed in May 2016,  FDOT staff requested the County adopt a resolution formally authorizing the agreement.  Attached Resolution R-16-114 has been drafted for this purpose, and staff recommends the Board adopt the resolution.
