Work zone information rethink

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is working to reconstruct a major section of Interstate 35. The project will expand the roadway and be complete in 2017. TxDOT is using an advanced traveler information system to keep the public informed which was developed with the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI). When the project is complete, the infrastructure will include permanent intelligent transportation systems, but TxDOT needed a solution for the construction phase. TTI studied travelers’ information needs using a user survey and comprehensive systems engineering process. They developed the advanced construction traveler information system from the results. The system has been deployed and, though it will continue to be improved, is helping to keep the road running smoothly.
