Missourians are used to keeping an eye on the weather before traveling, but there’s another tool that could prevent them from running into delays … the Transportation Department’s online map and toll-free number.
MoDOT’s online traveler information map gives motorists information on whether roads have been cleared of ice and snow, if there’s an accident or construction, water over the road and more. Spokeswoman Sally Oxenhandler says the map is continuously updated.
Those who don’t have computer access can call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT … Oxenhandler says callers will reach a live person any time of the day, any day of the week.That’s where MoDOT’s online Traveler Information Map comes in handy. Located at www.modot.org, the map gives drivers an up-to-the-minute view of weather-related road conditions for major Missouri highways. Conditions for major routes across the state are color-coded to give visitors the information they need at a glance.
The map shows road conditions for major Missouri cities, counties, MoDOT districts and other travel destinations. Individual routes can also be selected. A text report and links to road condition maps for surrounding states are also available.
Motorists calling MoDOT’s customer service center for road conditions at 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (888-275-6636) will get answers 24-hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
