Three-year Contract to Deliver Hyperlocal Weather Data to Support Road Maintenance Operations in Two Key New Jersey Roadways
- Deal provides access to hyperlocal weather data to support critical road maintenance decisions
- Initiative will improve the safety and efficiency of 295 miles of New Jersey highway
SANTA ANA, Calif. – September 12, 2018 – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA) has selected Iteris’ ClearPath Weather® to provide weather forecasting services for improved winter road maintenance response covering 295 miles of highway in the state of New Jersey.
The three-year contract, which is renewable for an additional two years, will give the NJTA access to high-resolution pavement weather forecasting and treatment alternatives, and maintenance decision support system (MDSS) services, throughout both the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway during winter weather events. In addition, Iteris will provide the NJTA with 24/7 access to ClearPath Weather’s severe weather advisories and alerting services, as well as direct access to Iteris meteorologists forecasting from the firm’s Weather Operations Center in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
“Our ultimate goal is to keep road users safe and to achieve this we need the most accurate current and forecast weather and pavement information possible,” said Michael Mahon, superintendent of snow operations at the NJTA. “By using ClearPath Weather as part of our MDSS operations, we can better address weather impacts across these two roadways, which are critical roads for both New Jersey and the entire north east.”
“We are proud to support the NJTA’s goal of improving the safety and mobility of New Jersey’s road users by providing access to hyperlocal current and forecast weather data,” said Jim Chambers, senior vice president and general manager, Agriculture and Weather Analytics at Iteris. “With the winter months approaching, data insights from ClearPath Weather will allow the authority to make the best maintenance decisions possible, both on a day-to-day basis and after extreme weather or storm events.”
ClearPath Weather is based on Iteris’ Highway Condition Analysis and Prediction System (HiCAPS™) pavement condition model and leverages proprietary application programming interfaces (APIs) to access weather data. The cloud-based MDSS solution features an easy-to-use interface, and advanced visualization tools and mapping, which give state and local agency maintenance managers access to real-time information, such as looping radar, satellite imagery, weather forecasts, plow location, and route-specific weather and pavement conditions.
