One of the sites we use for monitoring travel conditions around the region is the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s road map (http://511.ky.gov). The regular site is quite useful, but KYTC recently released a mobile app that optimizes the map for viewing on smartphones. It’s available through Apple’s App Store for iOS devices and through Google Play for the Android platform (sorry, Windows Phone users).
As you can see from the screen capture to the right (borrowed from the App Store page), the app enables you to see road reports of traffic disruptions (wrecks, weather, construction), current traffic speeds, and public-facing feeds from traffic cameras. This is a great tool for maintaining situational awareness for travel at any time of the year.
As always, stay safe – never use any smartphone app while driving. Pull over or pass your phone to a trusted navigator.
