U.S. Road Weather Management Program: Sensor Siting and Weather Information Integration Projects
This paper reports on two key projects of the U.S. FHWA Road Weather Management Program. The program partnered with the Aurora Program, and the Snow and Ice Cooperative Program of the AASHTO to create Road Weather Information System (RWIS) Environmental Sensor Station (ESS) Siting Guidelines. The guidelines provide a set of recommendations to support the uniform siting of sensor stations that collect road and weather condition observations. The FHWA also sponsored a study on the Integration of Emergency and Weather Elements into Transportation Management Centers. The study documented how weather information and systems are being integrated into transportation operations.
