It provides not only current information about road events, but future planned events as well. inRoads streamlines the process of creating and managing road, sidewalk, parking and other location-relevant municipal events (noise permits, etc.). inRoads publishes its data to the web, to email lists and to multiple open data formats.  Our deployment of InRoads is used by the City of Bloomington, Monroe County and Indiana University. An inRoads data feed can be provided to publish road closing information into Waze via its Connected Cities program.
