Hey, Doug Hill—Bob Marbourg could soon have traffic forecasting tools too!  A new technology, using information from existing roadside sensors, combines current and historical data to predict what you might expect on your way to work.  Software engineer Andre Gueziec says his application is customizable.  You can request a text message if a highway back-up develops or even view a 7-day traffic forecast.  Gueziec says the technology is available in 19 cities, but Washington is not one of them.  He hopes to begin work with the local transportation departments in the near future.  With the National Academy of Engineering, Randy Atkins, WTOP Radio.
