Real-time communication of important information to the public can be a difficult challenge to overcome. Recently the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) needed to communicate incident and closure information along the Central Texas stretch of the I-35 corridor during its multi- year construction project to widen the highway. To help solve this issue, TxDOT called upon the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI). Join this session and find out how TTI is blending the use of a real-time map web application, email, Twitter and SMS to successfully communicate time sensitive information to the public.
