I-35 Connected Work Zone

Project PDF

This project trailed new methods of providing real-time freight information using connected vehicle technologies.

The purpose of this project is to create and test a connected work zone for enhanced traveler information. Using the data from the I-35 traveler information initiative, the first phase provides advanced freight traveler information for pre-trip and en-route planning to participating freight carriers. The information conveyed includes work zone closure locations, capacity reductions, and queue lengths, and delays. The second phase of the project develops, deploys, and tests connected applications using vehicle V2I infrastructure and DSRC 5.9 GHz communication to warn of work zone locations, delays, traffic queues, and other applicable traveler information.
