MoDOT Information Map to Feature Bypass Routes on I-70
Beginning this weekend, MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map will have a new feature, displaying preferred bypass routes for incidents/congestion on I-44 and I-70.
MoDOT says 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 “Traffic” heading will appear on the map’s legend located on the left. The new feature will become available June 9.
“This new application is another tool to assist travelers in finding alternative routes if there is an accident or heavy traffic along two major interstates,” said Susan Summers-Harmon, a traffic operations engineer in MoDOT’s Central District.
The map provides current traffic conditions and shows real-time traffic flow. MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map is located at modot.org. The map is available as a free app for iPhone and Android phones.
