US-based traffic information technology company Inrix has signed a three-year contract with transport agencies in the US to use traffic data to assess the best way to spend transport funds along one of the Eastern Seaboard’s most important interstate highways.

The company said it will expand its programme along the Interstate 95 corridor on the Eastern Seaboard by working with the I-95 Corridor Coalition and the University of Maryland.

The extension of partnership will increase its data coverage from 5,000 miles to 20,000 miles of freeways in ten US states.

Inrix traffic data will help the transport agencies to streamline operations, pinpoint investments and deliver better traveller services, the company said.

The Inrix data will provide complete freeway coverage in six states including Rhode Island, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina and South Carolina.

NRIX data for highway-to-highway interchanges in urban areas offers transport agencies insight into real-time traffic conditions in areas previously blind to traffic operations.
