Iteris expands municipal customer base for road weather services

Iteris’ ClearPath Weather

Iteris, Inc  has entered into agreements with four new municipal customers to provide pavement forecasting, weather alerts, and inclement weather related call-outs using Iteris’ maintenance decision support system, ClearPath Weather®. Iteris now provides road weather services for 14 state DOTs and 65 municipalities.

The new service agreements for the cities of Colorado Springs, CO; Bloomington and Ramsey, MN; and Omaha, NE, provide pavement-level forecasting services for efficient resource management and road maintenance. The municipalities will also subscribe to ClearPath Weather’s METAlerts Alerting Service, a customizable subscription service for weather, road condition, and National Weather Service (NWS) watch or warning alerts.

“We have extended our market-leadership in providing state-wide support for snow and ice maintenance by enhancing our ClearPath Weather solution with pavement weather forecasting support for municipalities,” said Tom Blair, senior vice president of Iteris’ Performance Analytics Division. “The number of municipalities now under contract reflects the strength of our technology and service offering. We look forward to supporting maintenance managers with premium, real-time, road-specific weather information and decision support services, and enabling them to save time, money and resources while keeping their road networks safe and clear, before, during, and after severe weather events.”

ClearPath Weather is based on Iteris’ proprietary Highway Condition Analysis and Prediction System (HiCAPS™) pavement condition model. This cloud-based decision support solution features an easy- to-use interface with state-of-the-art visualization tools and mapping. The solution also provides road maintenance managers with access to critical information, such as radar, satellite imagery, weather forecasts, plough location, and route-specific pavement weather and road maintenance treatment recommendations.
