The Indiana Department of Transportation today announced the agency’s new mobile app is available for free download for iPhone or iPad users through the App Store and Android users through Google Play.
The INDOT mobile app offers statewide, real-time traffic information. Features include:
- A zoomable, scrollable map-based display
- Current traffic speeds
- Travel advisories
- Winter weather road conditions
- Customizable alerts for road closures, construction/maintenance, accidents
- Traffic camera images from metro areas (Indianapolis, Northwest Indiana, Louisville-Southern Indiana)
“INDOT is excited to be able to offer this tool for motorists, especially as we approach one of the busiest weeks for travel of the year,” Indiana Department of Transportation Commissioner Joe McGuinness said. “The new app is one more example of INDOT’s commitment to providing great customer service and the features can help travelers plan ahead, avoid delays, and have a safe trip to their holiday destinations.”
The INDOT mobile app also makes it easy to report roadway hazards, repair needs, and other concerns. Customers can also opt-in to receive email alerts on current and future INDOT construction projects and maintenance activities right from the app.
INDOT’s mobile app reports information for interstates, U.S. routes and state highways in Indiana. It does not include information on county roads or city streets.
The primary responsibility of every driver is the safe operation of his or her vehicle. Indiana law prohibits individuals from using a handheld electronic communication device to write, send or read a text message while driving. Drivers under the age of 21 are prohibited from using any electronic communication device while driving.
When in a vehicle, mobile communication devices should only be used by a passenger; or as a driver, when your vehicle is at a complete stop, at a safe location, out of the roadway. Don’t text and drive or use this app while driving.
