Manhattan RWIS Stations




The City of Manhattan currently has one RWIS station located on K–18. As of 2016, one additional RWIS was purchased, but hadn't been installed. Two additional RWIS monitoring stations on the North, East and West arterials surrounding the city, as well as the wireless or fiber links for communications are being considered.
