Our partner FDOT is thrilled with the reception of this project and is now even more confident that it will bring relief to many drivers across the state.

“…Really giving peace of mind that when they get on the road, they don’t have to do anything other than turn on their favorite navigational app, put that phone down and be able to drive and know that there’ll be real-time, accurate information for them as they travel on the state highway system.”

– Ian Satter, Public Information Director, FDOT

We can’t wait to see our technology being rolled out over 500 work zones across the state in the next few months and are delighted with the public response so far.
