Title: Dynamic Highway Messages Signs
Background: Senate Report 114-243 (accompanying the FY 2017 Department of Transportation Appropriations Act) dated May 5, 2017, contained requirements for a new FHWA Report to Congress about Dynamic Highway Message Signs.

This survey will be necessary to complete the Senate's request for a Dynamic Highway Message Signs Report within 120 days.
