Background Discussion
  • Manatee County's Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) projects were in essence the first major components to the Sarasota-Manatee Regional Traffic Management Center (RTMC). The Manatee County ATMS projects were two design-build projects managed by the FDOT.  Phase 1 was completed and accepted in July 2011 and Phase 2 in March 2012. 
  • Together these two projects provided fiber optic communication infrastructure for nearly 90% of the traffic signals maintained by the County.  RTMC monitors nearly 250 signalized intersections within the County and Cities of Bradenton and Palmetto.
  • Due to limited funding availability, ATMS infrastructure such as CCTV cameras, MVDS devices, Arterial Dynamic Message Signs (ADMS) were not included at the majority of the locations/corridors with the Phase 1 and 2 projects.  Recently, staff requested funding of the these ATMS devices and the fiber optic communication infrastructure at the remaining signalized intersections through the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO).
  • This Local Agency Program (LAP) agreement is to provide design plans for these devices (CCTV cameras, MVDS devices, Bluetooth Travel-time measurement devices, and Dynamic Message Signs) and the fiber optic communication infrastructure at various locations and corridors countywide (including within the Cities of Bradenton and Palmetto).
  • During Fiscal Year 2018, FDOT's 5-year Work Program has allotted $800,000 for this project which includes preparing design plans only. The County is not required to contribute any additional funds towards this project.
  • Staff has and will continue to request funding the construction and implementation of these devices and communication infrastructure through the MPO.
