Work Zone Data Exchange (WZDx) - Put Work Zones on the Map Outreach Toolkit

Work Zone Data Exchange (a.k.a. WZDx) header image.

Put Work Zones on the Map is an effort to educate and engage current and potential partners on the capabilities, benefits and progress of WZDx. The campaign focuses on audiences who directly engage with work zones: infrastructure owner operators (IOOs), construction companies, mapping companies and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). With this toolkit, partners can help distribute educational materials, raise awareness for pilot projects, increase involvement in the Work Zone Data Working Group, and generate excitement for WZDx — to ultimately encourage and facilitate adoption of the WZDx Specification.

If you are interested in supporting the Put Work Zones on the Map campaign, this toolkit is available to your organization to highlight your involvement in WZDx and educate fellow members of the transportation industry on this exciting next step in work zone safety. Please check back periodically for new and updated materials. Thank you for your support.
