ALDOT Launches ALGOtraffic.com to Give Drivers Road and Traffic Info Before They Go
MONTGOMERY– Today the Alabama Department of Transportation launched ALGOtraffic.com to help motorists plan their route on Alabama highways before they hit the road. ALGOtraffic.com is a website that consolidates up-to-the-minute traffic information, road conditions and work zone updates in one convenient location.
“We are pleased that ALDOT now has a new tool in ALGOtraffic.com to improve the safety and reliability of Alabama’s transportation network,” said Allison Green, Drive Safe Alabama coordinator with ALDOT. “The features we’re providing can help travelers avoid congestion and have a safer drive to their destinations.”
The home screen for ALGOtraffic.com is a map of Alabama where users can zoom into Birmingham, Mobile or Montgomery maps for road information specific to those areas. Additional features and geographic coverage will be added to ALGOtraffic.com during 2016.
From the menu on the left side of the screen, users can select which details they want to see, including:
- Traffic cameras
- Electronic highway information signs
- Incident information
- Road construction updates
- Highway travel speeds
ALDOT asks motorists to use ALGOtraffic.com responsibly. Drivers should “know before you go!” by checking traffic conditions before leaving for their destination. Motorists should never text, tweet, or use a mobile device while operating a vehicle.
ALDOT’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally and economically sound transportation network across Alabama. For further information, visit www.dot.state.al.us.
