Road Information just a click away

Kansas travelers have a new way to keep up with weather-related road conditions. The Kansas Department of Transportation is using the Internet to provide customers with a map detailing existing road conditions across the state. The map is located at

http://www.kanroad.org/

and it can also be accessed through KDOT's main web site

/

under "Road Conditions." It will show travelers if a road is closed, icy, snow packed, wet or normal for seasonal conditions. Users can view the primary routes in the state, or choose a specific region. The map is based on information entered by KDOT crews in the field. Travelers are reminded that weather conditions change rapidly in Kansas and, because of this, KDOT cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information. Travelers are advised to refer to other sources of information such as local weather reports and always use their own best judgement before deciding to travel. Travelers without access to the Internet are reminded about the toll-free Road Condition Hot Line, 1-800-585-ROAD (7623). The Kansas Highway Patrol updates weather conditions as needed for that number.
