The Alameda County Traffic Reporting and Inventory System (ACTRIS) has utilized a unique combination of diverse disciplines to produce an inventory of traffic control devices. With the support of the State of California Office of Traffic Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the efforts of three major consultants were coordinated to provide photogrammetric services, a field inventory, and computer processing. Data and maps made available by this program now provide a basis for more effective planning of traffic safety improvements and are facilitating maintenance and upgrading of traffic control devices.
