TPIMS Sign Installation

Black and McDonald, the KDOT contractor deploying TPIMS along the I-70 corridor, works with dynamic sign vendor SESA to install and commission the first TPIMS sign. KDOT, its staff and KDOT’s consultant HNTB, also visited the installation to confirm that the signs and dynamic message sign modules were installed correctly and operational.

PHASE 2 is currently in progress.

This includes final design, procurement and deployment oversight.
