Alameda County Freight Intelligent Transportation System | 2018-present


VSCE provided construction management services for Alameda County Transportation Commission’s (ACTC) Freight Intelligent Transportation System (FITS) program. This $24 million programis comprised of various projects intended to improve truck traffic flows, increase the efficiency of goods movement operations, and enhance the safety and incident response capabilities throughout the Port of Oakland.
