  • Abstract:
    The Weather-Responsive Management Strategies (WRMS) initiative under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Every Day Counts – Round 5 (EDC-5) program promotes the use of road weather data from mobile and connected vehicle (CV) technologies to support traffic and maintenance management strategies during inclement weather. The goal is to improve safety and reliability, as well as to reduce environmental impacts on the transportation system resulting from adverse weather. Across the Nation, WRMS can be implemented to mitigate the impact of various weather conditions. Northern States with hazardous winter weather could deploy WRMS strategies such as enhanced anti-icing and de-icing, plowing, and snow removal. Southern States with tropical weather such as hurricanes, flooding, or low visibility could deploy WRMS strategies such as enhanced motorist alerts and advisories or variable speed limits (VSLs). As part of EDC-5, more than 20 states are leveraging various communication mechanisms, sensor configurations, and software tools to generate and optimize the use of road weather data and information. This fact sheet provides an overview of what WRMS agencies across the country are currently deploying or in the planning stages of near-term implementation.
