West Virginia to get truck parking alert system

truck stopThe West Virginia Division of Highways will offer a guidance system to alert truckers to available parking via roadway signs and the 511 Traveler Information platform.

Open Roads announced Nov. 25 that the state had awarded the contract for deployment to the intelligent transportation system provider, in partnership with TCS International. The system will use wireless roadway sensors to gauge available rest area truck parking spaces in real time, which will be communicated to truckers via dynamic parking guidance roadside signs and the 511 Traveler Information platform.

A completion date for deployment was not immediately available.
