GPS Emergency Preemption Phase 1

This project will complete design plans for upgrading 10 traffic signals to accept GPS + cellular emergency vehicle preemption equipment with signal phasing for compatibility with new equipment proposed to be installed in all Apex fire trucks.  This will enable the trucks to activate a “green” signal phase on approach to clear vehicles and progress through more safely and efficiently on route to emergencies..
