State and local agencies can use funds received under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) for Operations projects, as long as they meet the obligation and funding requirements of the statute. Furthermore, planning to invest in Operations may help to relieve congestion resulting from work on other ARRA transportation projects. Please visit FHWA's ARRA Web site for more information and guidance on how FHWA is implementing the ARRA. Read more about some of the potential benefits of using ARRA funds on Operations projects.
The Work Zone Performance Measurement Using Probe Data publication assesses the potential for probe data to support work zone performance measurement programs. It includes an overview of probe data and identifies when and how probe data sources can be used to support work zone performance measures. It provides summaries of several projects that made use of probe data for work zone performance measurement or examined the capabilities and limitations of probe vehicle data.
