PASADENA, CA (January 19, 2015) – Parsons is pleased to announce that the City of Mississauga (greater Toronto area) has awarded the firm a 10‑year contract for the replacement of the city’s traffic signal control system as well as the provision of an Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS), including long-term support services. The city undertook a rigorous three-stage selection process after which Parsons was chosen. The city selected Parsons’ state-of-the-art Intelligent Networks® ATMS—known as iNET®, the platform of choice for 23 jurisdictions around the world—because it provides a modular, integrated, web-based platform to monitor, control, and manage traffic signals, with adaptive capabilities and several other ATMS applications.
Building upon the expertise of Delcan, which Parsons acquired at the end of March 2014, Parsons will serve as the prime contractor for the design, development, testing, and commissioning of the city’s ATMS, as well as installation, transition management, and long-term support and maintenance. In addition, Parsons will provide central system software and hardware, including new video wall and audio visual equipment and traffic signal controllers for the entire City of Mississauga.
“We are pleased to once again partner with the City of Mississauga for its transportation management needs,” said Todd Wager, Parsons Group President. “Cities across the globe face the challenge of coping with growing populations and increased traffic congestion. Parsons’ iNET® solution helps preserve the quality of life in these burgeoning areas by increasing safety for the traveling public as well as by enhancing the environment and stimulating the local and regional economies.”
Mississauga, located in the western part of the Greater Toronto Area, is the sixth most populous Canadian municipality with a population of 750,000. It placed first overall in “mid-sized cities of the future” of North and South America by fDi Magazine, a publication of the Financial Times. The existing traffic signal infrastructure of 750 signalized intersections and its central control system are more than 20 years old, which prompted the city to plan for replacement of this infrastructure with state-of-the-art technology to increase traffic management service efficiency, as well as to reduce current and future costs of maintenance and operations.Parsons is a technology-driven engineering services firm with more than 70 years of experience in the engineering, construction, technical, and professional services industries.
