​​​​​​Outdo​or Advertising Control  ​


Over the last four and a half years, at the request of the Federal Highway Administration, the AASHTOWare Program undertook a project to adapt software originally developed by the Mississippi DOT that would enable users in other DOTs to get real time status on permits, quickly locate and identify a billboard, and view related data.  The software also provided grid and map views of signs, notification of transfer documents, and sign confirmation reports.  Free evaluation periods with contractor support were offered over the last sixteen months.  Despite our best efforts, an insufficient number of agencies committed to license the software, making continued support under the AASHTOWare Program financially unsustainable.

As a result, effective November 17, 2017, AASHTO will sunset the AASHTOWare Right of Way Outdoor Advertising Control and on-going support and maintenance through the AASHTOWare Program will be discontinued.

AASHTO member agencies that executed an evaluation license will have the option to complete a source code agreement with AASHTO which will allow continued use of the software into the future for as long as they wish at their own risk.  Agencies choosing this option will be responsible for their own technical support, as well as all future product maintenance.

AASHTO is currently investigating other options, one of which is the possibility of partnering with WSP-USA to offer an alternative means for on-going product support and maintenance.  We will post updated information here as it becomes available.
