MoDOTís Traveler Information Map to feature bypass routes on I-70 and I-44

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

JEFFERSON CITY -- Starting June 9, MoDOTís Traveler Information Map will have a new feature. The map will be able to display preferred bypass routes whenever there is an incident/congestion on I-44 and I-70.

A bypass will be shown on the map as a green and yellow dashed line with a bypass symbol placed intermittently along the route. A new listing under the ďTrafficĒ heading will appear on the mapís legend located on the left.

ďThis new application is another tool to assist travelers in finding alternative routes if there is an accident or heavy traffic along two major interstates,Ē said Susan Summers-Harmon, a traffic operations engineer in MoDOTís Central District.

MoDOTís online Traveler Information Map has been helping drivers navigate work zones, snowy roads and flooded routes since 2007. The map provides current traffic conditions and shows real-time traffic flow. MoDOTís Traveler Information Map is located at www.modot.org. The map is available as a free app for iPhone and Android phones.
