The capital cost for an 18,000 square-feet traffic management center is estimated at $2,960,623.
The annual operating costs template includes several operational scenarios, from 8 hour per day operation up to 24 hour per day operation, to assist the decision makers in estimating the costs of the differing service levels.
Resources available to help estimate the cost for the various components include:
- Traffic Control System Operations – Installation, Management, and Maintenance ITE, 2000
- BiState St. Louis Area Intelligent Vehicle Highway System Planning Study, 1994
- U.S. DOT ITS Costs Database, http://www.itscosts.its.dot.gov/
- MAG Regional Concept of Transportation Operations, Technical Memorandum No. 5/6 (http://www.mag.maricopa.gov/pdf/cms.resource/TechMemo5-050703-Final.pdf)
According to reference 4 noted above, the annual operations and management (O&M) costs can range from $50,000 to $1.8 million for the TMC physical plant, and from $55,000 to $1.3 million for the TMC personnel.
