The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) seeks to improve its winter road monitoring and maintenance procedures. To support this public safety goal, we interviewed NMDOT stakeholders, companies that provide Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) services, and DOT experts from states with more winter weather experience. Our plan for New Mexico incorporates state-of-the-art ITS and current best practices. Specifically, we recommend locations for new cameras, and present our own online prototype plow tracking system. Further, we developed a plan for future groups to interview employees for feedback on proposed systems and recommend dynamic message sign locations.
