Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
ITS Strategic Deployment Plan Update
The Capital Area MPO partnered with the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carboro MPO and the NCDOT, FHWA and FTA to update the comprehensive regional Strategic Deployment Plan for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in the Triangle region. This study took place in 2018-2019, with the final report being released in early 2020.
Western Wake Traffic Signal System Integration Study
The Western Wake Traffic Signal System Integration Study is complete. The final report is the Western Wake Traffic Signal System Integration Guidebook.
One of the goals of the Triangle Region ITS Strategic Deployment Plan Update is regionalized ITS systems, including coordinated signal systems. The Capital Area MPO initiated a technical study to analyze the potential of bringing the Town of Morrisville signals into the Town of Cary signal system, as well as the broader implementation of a regional signal/ITS system in the western half of Wake County in close coordination with Morrisville, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay-Varina, and NCDOT. This study outlines specific implementation steps necessary for the successful integration of all traffic signals within Morrisville into Cary’s signal system. It also identified specific implementation steps and any additional work needed for the integration of all traffic signals within Apex, Holly Springs, and Fuquay-Varina into a regional signal system in coordination with NCDOT.

Completed in April 2010 and includes a snapshot of ITS best practices across the country and internationally, a multi-modal and regional list of projects to incorporate ITS into the regional transportation network, a regional ITS Architecture, and guidelines for maintaining the components of the plan.
