Summary Information

In September of 2015, USDOT selected New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) and Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) as the recipients of a combined $42 million in federal funding to pilot next-generation infrastructure and vehicle technology under the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilot site focuses on the needs of the commercial vehicle operator in the State of Wyoming and will develop applications that use vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) connectivity to support a flexible range of services from advisories including roadside alerts, parking notifications and dynamic travel guidance. The WYDOT CV Pilot is expected to reduce the number of blowover incidents and adverse weather related incidents (including secondary incidents) in the corridor in order to improve safety and reduce incident-related delays.

WYDOT will develop systems that support the use of CV technology along the 402 miles of I-80 in Wyoming. Approximately 75 roadside units (RSUs) that can receive and broadcast messages using Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) will be deployed along various sections of I-80. WYDOT will equip approximately 400 fleet vehicles and commercial trucks with on-board units (OBUs). Of the 400 vehicles, at least 150 will be heavy trucks that are expected to be regular users of I-80. In addition, of the 400 equipped-vehicles, 100 WYDOT fleet vehicles, snowplows and highway patrol vehicles, will be equipped with OBUs and mobile weather sensors.

The Pilot’s proposed number of devices are summarized in the table below.

The overall estimated cost of the Pilot was $5,755,972 with a federal share of $4,439,493 and a WYDOT match of $1,316,477 ($1,193,873 cash over the three years and $122,604 in-kind through state-funded overheads of staff). This was a 23 percent match to federal funding. The tables below summarize the overall cost.
