Collaboration Across the Road Weather Enterprise
This online engineering PDH course provides information on the best methods and practices for cross agency collaboration and the integration of weather information into daily transportation operations.
Weather has a significant impact on the operations of the nation’s roadway system year round. To help improve weather impacts on our roadways, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Road Weather Management Program (RWMP), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) National Weather Service (NWS) have been working together to document the state-of-the-practice and working relationships between State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and the weather enterprise.
The Pathfinder project was initiated to document current State DOT interactions and working relationships with the weather enterprise (both NWS and private sector). The team documented best practices across the agencies to disseminate consistent messages about the weather and its impact on the roads.
This 6 PDH online course is applicable to transportation engineers and traffic managers who are interested in learning more about the impact of weather on roadway systems and the best methods for improving the collaboration between State DOTs and the weather enterprise.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the impact of weather on the nation’s roadway system
- Familiarizing with the Pathfinder project, its background and the related concepts
- Learning about applying road weather forecasting in a State
- Understanding the weather impact on safety, mobility and productivity
- Exploring collaborative partnerships and relationships between the State and weather enterprise
