J-Band ROI Calculator

J-Band® has been protecting the centerline on DOT roads since 2002. Over the years, DOTs using J-Band have shared their savings and successes to calculate ROI and life extension learnings. This calculator was built using actual data of several midwestern states using J-Band. See one example here.
