Connected Vehicle-Enabled Weather Responsive Traffic Management – Final Report

Weather Responsive Traffic Management (WRTM) is an initiative under the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Road Weather Management Program that supports traffic management agencies and professionals in implementing effective advisory, control, and treatment strategies to mitigate transportation challenges due to adverse weather. Effective deployment of WRTM strategies depends upon an agency’s ability to collect and integrate traffic, weather, and road condition data to effectively analyze the impacts of weather conditions and deliver pertinent information back to the travelers. Connected vehicle-enabled weather responsive traffic management (CV-WRTM) is an approach that leverages vehicle connectivity to develop new tools for WRTM. Agencies face significant challenges in translating an interest in CV-WRTM to real-world applications, as there are many unknowns in converting research activities into implementation, including integration with the broader operational decision-making frameworks. This document summarizes the work completed to strengthen the linkages between WRTM and connected vehicle (CV) technology. It also summarizes the guidance developed under this task to help State DOTs integrate the emerging CV technology with their road weather management practices,
