The city of Brossard became a major construction site while conducting several projects simultaneously that impacted the mobility and fluidity of traffic on a 300km road network.
In July 2018, the city acquired OPA’s Software as a pilot project with a goal of optimizing the management of road obstructions and traffic mobility in real-time on its territory. At the end of the pilot project, the city awarded a multi-year subscription to OPA Software through public tendering.
OPA Software allowed the city to better manage the project by informing users through alerts about conflicts between them; and putting in place a chain of approval to better the communication between the different stakeholders.OPA highlights conflicts between the various projects within Brossard’s territory informing users through software alerts. The software supports any type of obstruction impacting mobility, whether total or partial closures of roads, sidewalks or bike paths and the selection of detours.
OPA enables the optimization of planning and managing obstructions by simplifying and maximizing collaboration between numerous city departments such as Planning, Public Works and Engineering, with stakeholders from the Ministry of Transportation, Hydro-Québec, city of Longueuil, the Caisse de Dépôt et Placement du Québec (CDPQ Infra) as well as any other organizations that have access through Brossard’s license with OPA Technologies.
In partnership with Waze, the GPS navigation software app, and Brossard, OPA acts as a provider of traffic data to both partners. The traffic data is displayed on the city’s website via public map.
