Starting in 2008, Q-Free entered a long-term partnership with the WVDOH to provide a state of the art ATMS platform for incident management and public awareness. This contract was expanded in 2011 to include a statewide traveler information system. In 2012, the new statewide 511 system was launched.
Continuing the maintenance and operations for the WVDOH project, Q-Free’s services provide 24/7 monitoring and on-call support as well as a software warranty for all 511/ATMS applications.
