Planning, Developing, And Implementing a Centralized Work Zone Data Hub—Iowa Department of TransportationAbstract:
As the nation develops an increasing reliance on technology and next generation transportation management, ensuring the availability of consistent, reliable data describing work zone events is critical to enabling agency management of highway operations. The FHWA is leading the Work Zone Data Initiative (WZDI) to improve the availability of information on work zone events—the “when, where, and how” of highway construction activity—by promoting standards and processes that enhance agency capabilities to manage transportation operations around work zones and enable sharing this valuable information with other transportation operations stakeholders.
This case study focuses on efforts by the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) to leverage WZDI resources to create a centralized work zone data hub that provides enhanced information for a variety of planning, operating, and post-construction use cases.
