Weather Information Processing and Distribution


This market package processes and distributes the environmental information collected from the Road Weather Data Collection market package. This market package uses the environmental data collected from VDOT ESS Weather Platform to detect environmental hazards such as icy road conditions, high winds, dense fog, etc. so VDOT NOVA District Maintenance, VDOT NOVA District Construction Management and planned decision support systems can make decision on corrective actions to take. The continuing updates of road condition information and current temperatures can be used by system operators to more effectively deploy road maintenance resources, issue general traveler advisories, issue location specific warnings to drivers using the Traffic Information Dissemination market package, and aid operators in scheduling work activity.
