VDOT Awards G4S $12 Million in Highway Safety Contracts

  • G4S Technology
OMAHA, NE - G4S Technology, a security and communications integrator, has been awarded contracts by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to provide fiber optic infrastructure and ITS equipment and services along a 13-mile stretch of I64W near Waynesborough, Virginia.

Fiber Optic Infrastructure to Support Traffic Safety
Under the terms of the contracts, G4S Technology will provide electronic messaging signs designed to keep travelers informed of traffic changes and weather conditions, additional traffic cameras for improved corridor surveillance, a Road Weather Information System (RWIS), visibility detection sensors to improve the existing fog-light system, and fiber optic infrastructure to support the operations of the system. These contracts are part of the VDOT Active Traffic and Safety Management System project, a major public safety initiative of Terry McAuliffe, the governor of Virginia.

Due to high traffic crash rates in this portion of Virginia, the specific areas of roadway to receive these critical improvements begin at mile-marker 94 to mile-marker 107 over the Afton Mountain, and a 12-mile segment of I-77 along a mountainous portion of Fancy Gap.

G4S Technology, which has a long track record in the transportation industry, is responsible for several ground-breaking ITS fiber-builds, upgrades and security build-outs across the United States. The company is devoted to providing the best technology and infrastructure to keep motorists safe and informed and, in turn, greatly improving travel times and public safety.

"We are proud to be involved with this important initiative for the citizens of Virginia," said Sam Belbina, President of G4S Technology. "Our system will both improve traffic congestion and, ultimately, save lives by safeguarding travelers as they pass through this high-risk area. The benefits of this ITS system are designed to stand the test of time and elements to continue to benefit Virginia for years to come."
