Features


Advanced notification and decision support.

Available with automated and configurable Maintenance Decision Support System (MDSS) functionality, RoadCast makes it easy for you to not only treat icy conditions but pre-treat at-risk areas, like bridges and decks, before problem conditions even occur, to ensure safer road travel for your community and your crews.

  • We use your provided pavement profile data for each of your specified locations (RWIS or Virtual Points).
  • We use the METRo pavement model, which is proven by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and widely used in the industry.
  • Get access to 24-hour forecasts, roadway temperatures, bridge deck temperatures, road and bridge frost potential, anti-icing recommendations, a 15-day location-specific forecast, and more.
  • We provide anti-icing recommendations based on FHWA rules, or you can customize your own protocols.
  • Consult with an experienced meteorologist online 24x7x365 to get quick answers to your pressing weather-related questions.
