Fort Bend Grand Parkway Toll Operations
The Fort Bend Grand Parkway Toll Road Authority (FBGPTRA) developed Segment D of the Grand Parkway as an all-electronic toll road. This 16.5-mile roadway, from US 59 to FM 1093/Westpark Tollway, consists of 14 tolling points for seven toll zones. RS&H developed toll system specifications and design requirements for the facility. This work included coordinating with the roadway design team to identify the specific tolling points, developing system procurement documents, working with the FCC to obtain RFID licenses, and developing Optical Character Reader requirements and related technologies.
RS&H provided system installation oversight, including inspection of the installation of loops, installation of the tolling equipment and cabinets, and oversight hardware checkout and interface testing. We also provided review and comment for testing all components as well as the fully functional system. This included plans for functional testing and performance testing, as applicable, during the factory acceptance test, site acceptance test, commissioning test, operational test, and performance audit. The commissioning test measured the full “end-to-end” functionality of the system, including any and all external interfaces to the project (interoperability HUB, violation processing center, and other interfaces as required).
RS&H also managed the procurement and development of Fort Bend’s violation processing services, including reporting, violation processing and reconciliation, communication planning, operation of the FBGPTRA violation processing center, and court preparation and litigation support. The violation processing center develops and processes violation notices to motorists as well as numerous other services. RS&H developed the performance-based contract requirements for the management of image review, violation processing, and revenue collection as well as system performance and maintenance.
