Project 17.7
Current Practices in Expanding DOT Traveler Information Coverage

State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) typically operate and provide traveler information for state maintained and operated roads. A challenge related to this is that some travelers who view State DOT traveler information mechanisms may interpret the lack of an event icon on a local road as clear or normal conditions even if an event is occurring on the local road. Additionally, travelers may benefit if state DOT operated traveler information systems were expanded to include additional roads beyond state operated roads (e.g., to cover local county and city roads and roads in national parks and tribal lands).

This project researched and documented practices for expanding DOT traveler information beyond State DOT maintained roads. The intent of the project was to provide North/West Passage members with insights and example practices of DOTs that provide traveler information beyond state maintained roads to consider for their states.
