Beginning on April 23, CDOT launched its updated email and text message travel alerts, in order to share more information with their users. According to their brief, travel alerts will now provide greater detail about the incidents that impact Colorado motorists’ driving and travel conditions. Each message will now contain a link that, when clicked, will provide the full details of incidents, as well as a map showing the incidents' exact location. Users can also find information about all current travel impacts by logging into CDOT’s alert site and selecting any of the following menu options: Traffic & Travel; Oversize/Overweight; Commercial Chain Law. CDOT says these alert system improvements are in response to user feedback – so please, keep your feedback coming! To learn more about how to set up or modify your CDOT travel alerts, visit the Travel Alert System signup page and follow the steps and links.
As we all know, road work, difficult weather, and traffic jams can lead to frustration and delays all across Colorado’s roadways. Thankfully, CDOT is packed full of resources to enhance your traveling experience. Use CDOT's Travel Center to help you plan your sunny summer long-weekends, and if traveling a long ways during a weekend or peak time, make sure to check CoTrip to know before you go.
The goal of CDOT’s improvements is to encourage more users to subscribe, and work towards a better driving experience for everybody. In tough situations, these alerts can save you time and stress. Just remember, drive safely, and DO NOT read THESE travel text or email alerts while at the wheel!
