Intelligent Transportation Systems for Operation of Roadway Segments in High-Wind Conditions

Truck safety in high-wind conditions—in particular, the use of intelligent transportation system technology for operating roadway segments during high-wind conditions—is examined. The frequent high-wind conditions in Wyoming cause trucks to overturn and often lead to the closure of a road, resulting in delays, economic impact, and a loss of system reliability. This paper addresses how critical weather conditions can be identified; what the various levels of operations can be, depending on these conditions; the means for identifying at-risk vehicles; and the benefits of implementing an advanced system for operating these high-hazard roadway segments.
