DDOT Adaptive Signal Design

KAI is leading a multi-phase effort to design and implement Adaptive Signal Control technology along three corridors within the District of Columbia. The District corridors—New York Avenue, Rhode Island Avenue, and Pennsylvania Avenue—serve as commuter routes, and the optimization of signals is critical for corridor throughput during peak hours.

As part of the design effort, KAI is overseeing the signal timing optimization of two of the three corridors, the systems engineering process for Adaptive Control selection, and the design and implementation of adaptive technology at roughly 50 intersections on the three corridors. KAI has prioritized feedback from the project stakeholders, conducting one-on-one interviews with DDOT staff, engineers, and policy makers to ensure the ultimate long-term success of the system.
