SAN DIEGO, California, January 18, 2023 - SWARCO McCain, Inc., a leader in the supply of advanced transportation solutions, and Innovative Traffic Solutions Inc., a longtime SWARCO McCain, Inc. distributor, today announced their partnership with the City of Greater Sudbury in the province of Ontario for the first Canadian full-city installation of the McCain ATC Cabinet. The project includes upgrades to 122 intersections over a period of three years and is part of the City’s plan to upgrade their traffic management infrastructure to a modern system that allows for future growth.
“This project aligns with City Council’s commitment to asset management and service excellence,” said Tony Cecutti, General Manager, Infrastructure Services for the City of Greater Sudbury. “[This project] relies on an organization that demonstrates a willingness to plan, implement, and innovate in accordance with short and long-term priorities. Initiatives that address this priority not only enable reliable service delivery; they also minimize costs for taxpayers in the long term.”
The cabinets provided in this project include the McCain M ATC Cabinet, with the traditional M footprint of NEMA cabinets, and McCain 356i ATC Cabinet, boasting a compact size and robust functionality. Overall, the McCain ATC Cabinet Series offers a modern design with advanced safety features including benefits like increased safety for technicians and drivers, enhanced operations, and reduced costs.
“We are very excited to be partnering with the City of Greater Sudbury on such a significant project,” said Frank Rao C.E.T., President of Innovative Traffic Solutions Inc. “The McCain ATC Cabinet has become the preferred cabinet choice throughout the traffic industry, and it’s no wonder why. If an agency is looking for smart traffic solutions that incorporates the latest technology and provide a platform for flexibility and growth, the McCain ATC Cabinet is the best choice.”
The project, to be completed in 2024, will not only provide the City with the infrastructure to support future growth and demand, but will also allow the City to leverage additional systems like transit signal priority and emergency vehicle preemption.
