State Project No. 170-3346
Roadway Weather Implementation System
Scope of Work
The Connecticut Department of Transportation currently has thirteen (13) Roadway Weather Information System (RWIS) sites.
The RWIS sites provide real-time weather information to the Department which is
used to manage winter maintenance and weather related activities.
The Department is developing plans for installation of twenty-five (25)
additional sites which will expand the geographic coverage of the RWIS and offer
improved responses by the Department maintenance crews to provide safe roadway
conditions. RWIS sites will include a fenced-in tower and
an illumination pole close to the roadway that holds atmospheric sensors and
road pavement sensors. |
The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed by the end of 2016, with construction anticipated to start early 2017, assuming acceptance of the project and the availability of funding. This project will be undertaken with 100% state funds.
