Did you know that there are resources available by state to stay up-to-date with traffic incidents, construction and weather related notifications?
The U.S. Department of Transportation, with the approval of the Federal Communications Commission, developed the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) to increase traffic efficiency and safety on the nation’s roadways.
The ITS gathers information about almost everything that can impair the ability of motorists to arrive at their destination safely and smoothly, such as detours, accidents, road closures, poor weather conditions, and dangerous roadway surfaces.
Below are links to Northeast State sites for your reference. Most can be found in “www.511[state].org” format, but if not, they can easily be located by doing an internet search for your state’s DOT website. Use these resources to make sure you choose a safe route before heading out!
