MDOT Offers New Way to Look at Bridge, Pavement Data
JACKSON, MISS. – The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) launched a new website aimed at increasing transparency and accountability.
“The data presented on this new website isn’t new, MDOT has always made the data available,” said Melinda McGrath, P.E., MDOT executive director. “The website presents the data in a new, more user-friendly way.”
The MDOT Public Accountability Transportation Hub, or PATH, provides an interactive visual analysis of historical and current statewide road and bridge conditions.
Currently, the MDOT PATH site offers data on the condition of all bridges on the state-owned transportation system, as well as pavement conditions for all state-maintained highways and interstates. In the future, MDOT will add a component to allow the public to view active construction projects throughout the state.
“As a state agency, MDOT is accountable to the citizens of Mississippi,” McGrath said. “Using actual data collected by MDOT staff, this site will allow the people of Mississippi to see the condition of the state’s transportation infrastructure.”
