Parsons Brinckerhoff is committed to assisting state and local highway and transit agencies with creative and innovative technology solutions to help meet their transportation goals and objectives.
Parsons Brinckerhoff has become an international leader in the planning, design, and implementation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), including field devices, tolling technology, managed lanes, communications, travel information, and transit technology. We offer cutting edge expertise in rapidly growing areas such as active traffic management, connected vehicle research, performance measurement, and TMC/TOC operations.
Throughout Parsons Brinckerhoff we recognize the opportunity presented by a stronger focus on Transportation System Operations. Adopting this new “culture of operations” in public agencies means balancing current construction/maintenance activities with a much stronger operational influence. Parsons Brinckerhoff can help bring a customer-focused approach to managing a transportation network that includes measuring performance, providing options based on real-time conditions, and deploying infrastructure-based operational enhancements.
Parsons Brinckerhoff has led or participated in projects of all sizes - working with local, state and national governments around the world - and has extensive and successful experience in almost every discipline of system operations and ITS. Our collaborations have ranged from traffic signal optimization to TMC operation to revolutionary connected-vehicle demonstrations. We've helped develop ITS master plans and updated regional ITS architectures, written specifications and provided PS&E for deployment of field equipment, and have managed system integration and telecommunication projects in virtually every configuration. Our concept-through-operations approach ensures well-planned and well-engineered projects that are environmentally and community sensitive.
