Kapsch TrafficCom Wins Large Electronic Tolling Project in the USA.
Vienna, 10th June 2021 – Kapsch TrafficCom (Kapsch) is pleased to announce that Plenary Infrastructure Group (Plenary) has awarded Kapsch a project to implement a new toll collection system for the Louisiana Highway (LA-1) for the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD). The project is an amendment to Kapsch’s existing contract with Plenary, where Kapsch is providing an end-to-end all-electronic tolling system and related maintenance services for a major bridge and tunnel replacement in Belle Chasse, Louisiana . Plenary began construction on the new bridge and tunnel in January 2020.
Kapsch’s scope of work for the LA-1 project includes updating the existing tolling infrastructure with the Kapsch advanced lane solution, updating and providing back off systems and services, as well as advancing modern efficiencies into operations and maintenance. The new system will work with the state’s current GeauxPass transponder program, and will include new system features such as a toll-by-plate program. Implementation activities are scheduled to commence in 2023, followed by 30 years of technical and commercial operations.
“We look forward to the ongoing partnership with Plenary and the Louisiana Department of Transportation,” said JB Kendrick, president of Kapsch TrafficCom North America. “These infrastructure and tolling system investments will provide the modern facilities and operational efficiencies that can optimize the travel experience for Louisiana drivers.”
