Benefit Summary HTML
The Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Aurora Program funded this research project to provide a benefit-cost assessment for weather information in winter maintenance. A model for winter maintenance costs was developed and applied to three case studies in Iowa, Nevada, and Michigan to analyze the benefits and costs associated with the use of weather information. The research results should help transportation agencies to guide and direct future investment in weather services and technologies.
