December 2017 ITS Arizona Service Event

ITS Arizona is celebrating one year of Adopt-a-Path sponsorship of the Tempe Canal Path! ITS Arizona volunteers and their families participated in another clean-up event on Saturday, December 2, 2017. The group collected several bags of trash and two shopping carts, which will be collected and disposed of by the City of Tempe. Thank you to the volunteers who participated in the clean-up! Interested in participating in a future adopt-a path event? Look for email announcements for our next clean-up in April 2018. We look forward to seeing you there!

Signal Timing Manual Review Sessions

The AZTech Operations Committee, with the support of the Arizona Institute of Transportation Engineers and the Intelligent Transportation Society of Arizona, is conducting a series of review sessions for the second edition of the Signal Timing Manual.  The Signal Timing Manual is an invaluable reference for anyone involved with the design, operation and maintenance of traffic signals and has been expanded significantly since the original 2008 version. 

The third session is scheduled for Wednesday, November 15th, and will review Chapters 7-8, which cover System/Coordinated Timing and Implementation and Maintenance. The instructor will be Kevin Balke, Senior Research Engineer with Texas A&M Transportation Institute, and one of the authors of the manual.

While this is a free event, registration is required. For more details, and to reserve a seat, register online.
