Abstract This document is the final report that describes the process and results of integrating Clarus and other weather alert data into the 511 New York Traveler Information System. This project involves the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of an intelligent transportation system that collects real-time Clarus Road Weather Information System data and other pertinent weather alert data from various sources on the Long Island Expressway (I-495) and I-87 in New York State and integrates the information for display to the end-user through a modified 511 New York (511NY) traveler information website. The goal of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of collecting, integrating, and disseminating various types of current and forecast location-specific weather alert data for use by traffic managers and motorists to help make better travel decisions, reduce congestion, and improve safety.
