2016 ACEC National Recognition Award Winner
Firm Name: Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc.
Project Name: Tallahassee Regional Transportation Management Center
Project Location: Tallahassee, Florida
Client Name: City of Tallahassee
Operated by the City of Tallahassee and Leon County, the Regional Transportation Management Center is a model of local government operations mutually benefiting from the integration of their respective systems.
The co-location of the Tallahassee’s Advanced Traffic Management System, which controls 350 traffic signals, with the SunGuide® Fare Management System allows for dramatic facility improvements and cost savings. The facility’s centerpiece is a two-level video wall that can be viewed by all agencies in the complex. This easily customized display can bring together real-time closed-circuit television images from 126 traffic cameras to monitor traffic along Interstate 10 and critical local roadways.
The project is one of 151 being recognized by ACEC from throughout the nation and the world as preeminent 2016 engineering achievements. All winners—including 16 Honor Awards, eight Grand Awards and the prestigious “Grand Conceptor Award” for the year’s most outstanding overall engineering achievement—will be celebrated at the upcoming Engineering Excellence Awards Dinner and Gala, a black-tie event to be held Tuesday, April 19, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C., as part of the 2016 ACEC Annual Convention.
