If you’re traveling in Indiana this holiday season, the state now has a mobile app to keep you apprised of traffic alerts.
Developed by the Indiana Office of Technology and Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS), the Indiana Travel Advisory app includes weather updates and notifications on flooding, hazardous materials spills and other issues that could affect travel conditions.
“This new app will be a great on-the-go resource for citizens and visitors to Indiana,” said Gov. Mike Pence, in a statement. “The travel advisory map has been one of the most popular pages on the state of Indiana website, particularly during times of inclement weather. The app will be even more convenient, and we hope many people will use this as a resource to make informed travel decisions.”
Last winter, the IDHS County Travel Status Map was the most visited page on IN.gov, generating nearly 5 million unique visitors between Dec. 1, 2013, and March 31, 2014, according to the state.
Additional features on the app include:
The Indiana Travel Advisory app is available for iOS and Android devices in the App Store and Google Play, respectively.
