The Texas Department of Transportation has launched a new online map application, Drive Texas™, that provides travelers with real-time traffic conditions, traffic and weather feeds, as well as links to other useful travel information.
Drive Texas™ displays statewide conditions affecting travel—construction, closures, accidents—as well as a live weather feed that allows drivers to check conditions along their route. Travelers can plot a course by entering their start and end cities to view highway conditions along their route, and they can also locate TxDOT Safety Rest Areas or Texas Travel Information Centers. In select cities, travelers can also view images from traffic cameras, messages posted on dynamic message signs, and other detailed information.
This new site features a user-friendly interface, making it easy for the traveling public to access real-time conditions affecting travel across Texas. The application can be found at www.DriveTexas.org, or by clicking on the “Highway Conditions” link on the TxDOT homepage at www.TxDOT.gov. And for those on the go, a mobile-friendly version is available. To use Drive Texas™ while en route, motorists should pull off the highway to a safe location or have a passenger access the service.
