Agenda Report # 66


TO: Mayor and Council

SUBJECT: Intelight MaxTime Signal Software Deployment

INITIATED BY: Department of Engineering


Recommendation: Approval is requested for the acceptance of services, software and equipment from Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) in order to upgrade the City's signal system to Intelight MaxTime software.

Background: GDOT has initiated a program to upgrade state and local signal systems throughout the state to Intelight MaxTime software. A representative from GDOT made a presentation at Council on October 31, 2017 about the program and the implementation at the Flat Rock Road/Kitten Lake intersection. Staff has been working with GDOT and their consultants to determine what would be needed to implement throughout the City.

Analysis: MaxTime/Maxview collects data at the intersections every 10th of a second and allows someone to analyze the data to look at how the signal is operating, look at timing plans and troubleshooting equipment. It will send alerts when the signal goes into flash or when certain equipment is not functioning properly. GDOT also provides oncall technical assistance for the software. GDOT will upgrade any CPU's and power supplies as required to run the software. Training is provided for staff on the operation and maintenance of the system. GDOT and staff will be able to access a server to monitor and make adjustments to the system remotely. GDOT is providing 4G routers and cellular service to all signal systems not connected with fiber. The spreadsheet provides outlines the proposed schedule for implementation.

Financial Considerations: There is currently no expected cost to the City.

Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement: City staff will continue to operate and maintain the system.

Legal Considerations: All grant services require Council approval.

Recommendations/Actions: Approve the acceptance of services, software and equipment from Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) in order to upgrade the City's signal system to Intelight MaxTime software.
