Investment in road transportation infrastructure is high on the agenda for federal, state and local agencies. And the return of this investment will only be enhanced by utilizing advances in technology and data analysis to optimize both planning and operations.
Planners and their agencies need to forecast road capacity and peak period traffic flow, not just for today but years into the future. And once construction is completed, road and corridor services levels must be optimized. TrafficCast technology and data analysis are essential to both, from capturing driver route preferences and behavior at intersections to establishing variable speed limits for flow maintenance and even to anticipate revenue options to augment or replace gasoline tax funding.
For road operations, it is essential to respond quickly to accidents, clear debris and keep drivers informed. TrafficCast supports safety and service levels with enhanced incident detection, travel time forecasts and a variety of analytic tools.
TrafficCast helps departments of transportation optimize their return on infrastructure investment and to fund these infrastructure investments equitably. TrafficCast can also advise enterprise on how to most productively, effectively and cost efficiently, deal with user fees and other costs as they may be deployed.
