Travel App For ND Roads

Posted:
Bismarck, ND -

As winter approaches, it's even easier for you to find out if it is safe for you to travel.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation is pushing their new app, NDRoads.

You can download the app onto your smart phone or tablet.

The app has a travel map with updated information on road conditions along with cameras capturing pictures and video from 55 places across the state.

During the April snow storm, when the app was still new, there were 40,000 users.

ND DOT Maintenance Division Engineer Brandon Beise says, "It zooms into where you are at. It zooms into any part of the state so you can see what the road conditions are. We have a disclaimer on there that you aren't supposed to use it while you are driving, so hand it off to a passenger or pull off to the side of the road and check it out." You can also get up to date road info on the travel map on the DOT's website along with calling 5-1-1.

The DOT also warns drivers about the dangers of passing snowplows, saying they will pull over when they have a chance.

This is winter weather awareness week, and officials say this is a good time to make sure your vehicle is packed with winter weather survival gear.
