The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recently approved the Work Zone Data Exchange (WZDx) developed by one.network for deployment by transportation agencies to access accurate and timely work zone information.

Starting immediately, the company says it will create a WZDx feed for any U.S. transportation agency that asks free of charge.

The free initiative comes after one.network worked with FHWA’s WZDx team to ensure feeds will be compliant with program protocols. 

“We believe in work zone information standardization and efficiency, and we’re putting our own equity behind it,” Adam Graham, one.network’s Chief Product Officer, said in a statement. “In traffic management, sharing accurate and timely information with the widest possible audience is key. We have the technology to build these feeds and set them up for an agency within days, saving agencies the cost and effort to create their own feeds from scratch.”

The one.network WZDx feed is designed to deliver as many data streams into a feed as an agency needs to accomplish the mission, the company says.

According to one.network, each WZDx feed will include comprehensive data on planned work zone activity, allowing drivers to avoid hazards and agencies to contribute to a national repository of work zone information coordinated by FHWA. GPS navigation apps, connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) applications, organizations, and regional authorities will all have access to the feeds.

More information can be found on the company's website.
