BILL NO. 18-0571st R

Agenda Title:

18-057 - 1R. An ordinance authorizing the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Agreement with the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission for the Independence Operation Green Light (OGL) Traffic Controllers Project (No 70110704).

Recommendations:

Approval of the ordinance is recommended.
Executive Summary:

This ordinance would approve a project agreement with the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission (MHTC) for the Independence Operation Green Light (OGL) Traffic Controllers Project (No. 70110704). This project will receive up to $95,100.00 in federal funds reimbursement. The agreement grants the use of federal funds to purchase traffic signal controller equipment.
Background:

The City is a partner in the regional traffic signal program Operation Green Light (OGL), which is managed by Mid-America Regional Council. The City has 36 signalized intersections connected via OGL. The project will replace traffic signal controllers for the City’s OGL intersections. Existing controllers are near end-of-life by date of installation – original deployment for the majority was 2005 – and are near obsolete due to advances in both OGL software and traffic signal controller software and hardware. New controllers will optimize traffic signal operations for the City’s OGL intersections.

 

There is $95,100.00 in federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds available for the project. These funds are administered by MoDOT. The ordinance would approve a project agreement that will allow the City to use the federal funds reimbursement. The project federal funds will be available in fiscal year 2019.



Fiscal Impact:

The ordinance approves a project agreement that will result in $95,100 in federal CMAQ funds being available for the Independence OGL Traffic Controllers project.
