Episode 56: Winter operations is more than salt and snowplows

By January 23, 2022Podcasts

Maintenance operations during extreme events is far more complex than salt and snowplows.  Historically we thought of the motorist as a consumer of maintenance’s efforts but in reality they are an active participant who’s actions have implications on the operations of the network.  In this episode Wilf Nixon, President of the Professional Snowfighters Association, joins the discussion of how we operate the network with the many major events that have happened so far in the winter of 2021-22 as a backdrop.

Things like Traffic Incident Management (TIM), traveler information, preemptively holding traffic, and disaster exercises are all part of the discussion.
