RALEIGH – The following are highlights from this week at the N.C. Department of Transportation. The stories below are also featured in
NCDOT Now, the department’s weekly newscast.
DriveNC.gov, the state’s interactive website that helps users view current traffic and road conditions for their route, is now more user friendly with improved search options thanks to a recent update.
The site, previously called TIMS or the Traffic Information Management System, has a new, modern look and feel. In addition to being mobile friendly, DriveNC defaults to the user’s location, ensuring they receive information most applicable to where they are.
A toggle display on the home page lets users choose the types of information they’re looking for such a:
- Crashes, construction or congestion;
- Adverse weather impacts;
- Traffic cameras on major roads and interstates; and
- The ability to search by street addres.
Other helpful information includes rest area and shelter locations when shelters are open during severe weather. Be sure to
visit DriveNC.gov before heading out on your next trip.
