MoDot Providing More Information to Travelers

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - Missouri motorists now have more information to help navigate the state's roads.

The Missouri Dept. of Transportation launched a new Internet site that combines work zone information, highway closings and weather-related road conditions on one map.

The department also has installed 48 electronic message boards along Interstates 70 and 44.  They provide up-to-date information about road closings, accidents, hazardous conditions or Amber Alerts about missing children.

Additionally, the department says its toll-free phone number now will be answered 24 hours a day, instead of switching over to an answering machine after normal working hours.

The map of road information can be found at http://www.modot.mo.gov
