Collaboration Across the Road Weather Enterprise: The Pathfinder Project

Weather has a significant impact on the operations of the nation’s roadway system year-round. To help improve weather impacts on our roadways the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Road Weather Management Program (RWMP) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) National Weather Service (NWS) have been working together to document the state-of-the-practice and working relationships between State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and the weather enterprise. The Pathfinder project was initiated to document current State DOT interactions and working relationships with the weather enterprise (both NWS and private sector). The team documented best practices across the agencies to disseminate consistent messages about the weather and its impact on the roads. This document serves as a guidance document for improving the collaboration between State DOTs and the weather enterprise.
