Texas Work Zone Data Exchange Datasets Are Now Available on ITS DataHub

The U.S. Department of Transportation is pleased to announce the addition of a lane closure occurrence dataset from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) on its ITS DataHub. TxDOT’s highway system provides this Work Zone Data Exchange (WZDx) Feed Registry, which is the first WZDx feed to follow the new WZDx Specification version 2.0 in the GeoJSON format.

The future of transportation is increasingly data driven and reliant upon reliable, consistent, standardized, and up-to-date information about dynamic conditions occurring on the roads. Construction events, and information on accompanying work zone traffic controls, are one such dynamic roadway activity for which accurate data drives safety, mobility, and organizational efficiency for all stakeholders—from infrastructure owners and operators to the traveling public.

A continuously updated archive of the TxDOT WZDx feed data can be found at the ITS WorkZone Raw Data Sandbox and the ITS WorkZone Semi-Processed Data Sandbox.
