On April 25, Kanas City Scout (KC Scout), a bi-state initiative between the Missouri and Kansas Departments of Transportation to provide travel and traffic information and service for the Kansas City metro area, suffered a cyberattack.

KC Scout took immediate protective action and shut down all systems.

This protective measure means all real-time cameras, information boards, and the KC Scout website/app are not functioning. The system has been, and will remain, unavailable until further notice as restoration of service efforts are underway.


At this time, there is no additional information to share on the nature of the cyberattack and no timeline for restoration of services. MoDOT and KDOT will provide updates on service restoration as information becomes available.
