Wisconsin Adds Mobile App to Provide Travelers with up-to-date Traffic Alerts
June 30, 2015—The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has launched a free smart phone application that will provide statewide travelers with information on traffic incidents, delays/backups, closures/detours, work zones and weather-related road conditions. Available on both Apple and Android devices, the app provides up-to-date traffic related information through traffic alerts that can be programmed to align with the users favorite travel areas.
Other features of the application include:
- Nearly 400 traffic camera live-feeds to view road conditions
- Travel times and speeds for highly traveled routes
- Road work information, to include dates and times of full closures and lane restrictions
- Incident notifications.
