The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is installing sensors into the surface of US 395. The sensors will classify passing vehicles as one of 13 types. A key advantage of the categorization process is that it will allow NDOT to lay appropriate types of pavement – for example, asphalt, tarmac or concrete – on different stretches of the road, according to which vehicles are most frequently using it, in order to lengthen the lifespan on the road’s surface.
