delivers road management technology in Florida

British-based road management and roadworks data technology provider has signed an agreement with the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority in Florida to provide traffic management, work zone notification and construction planning software solutions for the agency.

THEA is widely respected as a progressive traffic management and road safety agency and is one of only 10 organisations designated as a connected and autonomous vehicle test bed by the US Department of Transportation.

THEA will deploy the platform in two phases to address a number of scenarios. The initial phase will provide immediate benefits from modules including’s Traffic Management platform, a real-time digital mapping solution and Live Link, which allows authorized workers to update lane closures and schedules right from work zone. In phase two, THEA will deploy Plan Share, allowing construction firms to dramatically streamline and simplify the permitting process. James Harris,’s founder and CEO said the collaboration is a marriage of like-minded organizations. “The nation has its eyes on THEA, because it’s committed to using technology to its greatest advantage, assuring efficiency and safety for all,” he said. “We have held that same commitment since our beginning and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with such a progressive agency.”

THEA manages the Selmon Expressway in Tampa but because is already ingesting data from the city of Tampa and Hillsborough County, the project will provide residents with continuous regional information streams across jurisdictions. The agency was looking for a holistic solution and this agreement delivers on its goal to constantly improve its connected vehicle and communications strategies as new technologies emerge.’s Traffic Management software displays real-time work zone, planned event and incident information on an intuitive digital map. Live Link is a first of its kind program that allows work zone crews to close lanes right from the roadway, sharing that data with GPS providers including Google, WAZE and other companies in their native formats. Plan Share provides road construction firms and utilities with a comprehensive yet simple platform to plan and permit road construction projects. 

As part of the agreement, will build a Work Zone Data Exchange (WZDx) feed for THEA, to deliver work zone data to the Federal Highway Administration’s national repository of work zone data, that will be shared with other agencies and third parties across the nation.

The agreement cements’s prominence in Florida where the Florida Department of Transportation’s statewide Lane Closure Notification System (LCNS) is powered by’s Live Link software, providing GPS companies with real-time work zone data throughout the state.
