By March 31, 2022April 1st, 2022Podcasts

Listen in as SICOP Talks Winter Ops with Tony Coventry of the FHWA’s Road Weather Management Program and Kyle Garrett of Synesis Partners about the Integrated Modeling for Road Condition Prediction or IMRCP.

When it comes to road weather management there have been a few major advances in the way agencies manage roadway networks during weather events. The latest under developed through a series of pilots is the Integrated Modeling for Road Condition Prediction or IMRCP. Modeling the performance of a roadway network during a weather event marks a milestone in understanding and prediction just how it will perform provides a practical tool to support operational decision making, maintenance planning, and traveler information.

Tony and Kyle describe the beginnings of the program, where its going in the future, and how it can help agencies achieve their maintenance and road network operation mission during weather events.
