DelDOT: Spending or Creating Value?

March 1, 2009

How Many Bridges, Roads and other infrastructure in Delaware will use the latest technology?

For more than 30 years, inspections of dams and bridges have been left largely to the human eye.

But wireless sensor technology has been changing all that, enabling the conditions of dams and bridges to be monitored in real time 24/7 without the need for human intervention.  With funding from the stimulus package potentially going toward infrastructure, that could mean more money to monitor dams and bridges, something that is viewed by many as crucial to protecting the nation’s transportation system and its safety.

Is Delaware spending to spend or creating value?
