Interstate 15 & State Route 91, highways that runs through one of the most congested regions of the world, experience a state-of-the-art All-Electronic-Tolling (AET) express lanes System.

Riverside County drivers on the busy I-15 highway, which connects the US-Canadian border with Las Vegas and Southern California, and SR-91, which runs through several regions of the Greater Los Angeles area, experience an improved drive and reduced congestion by using the barrier-free express lanes system. The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) contracted with Kapsch TrafficCom to provide the end-to-end solution.

JB Kendrick, President at Kapsch TrafficCom USA, Inc., commented:

Our solution has helped RCTC to reduce congestion on the corridor, and to improve end-user experiences based on consistent and highly responsive services. Other key benefits are the ability to incentivize ride sharing to further reduce traffic while collecting revenue to meet the financial obligations of the I-15 Express Lane project.

End-To-End Project Acceptance Awarded August 23rd

After completion of a number of project milestones, including the opening of the 15 Express Lanes and the customer service center in 2021, the final project acceptance was received, certifiying that Kapsch TrafficCom was able to meet all performance and contractual requirements for the project and continue the five year partnership to operate & maintain the RCTC Express Lanes system.

The two tolled express lanes incorporate eight toll points on the I-15 Express Lanes and four on the SR-91 Express Lanes in Riverside County. Kapsch TrafficCom also delivered 15 variable message signs (on the roadside), 27 CCTV cameras for enforcement, and 39 microwave vehicle detectors. The solution includes the 15 Express Lanes back-office system,dynamic pricing, image review, a customer contact center, and collections enforcement.Kapsch also provides the operations and maintenance functions for the express lanes and staffs and operates the traffic operations center and customer service center.
