The average installation cost per intersection of an Adaptive Traffic Control System (ATCS) is $65,000.
Cost data obtained from a survey of ATCS users, published in 2010.
The report highlighted that reported costs often include more than simply the installation of the adaptive components of the system. For example, reported costs may include replacement of the local intersection hardware, software, or even new communication infrastructure. (Survey responders could only report on the total costs per intersection of their deployments.)
The table below shows the distribution of the ATCS installation costs per intersection as reported in the survey results.
