When the Weather is Frightful, MoDOT Has An App For That
New KC Scout app and other tools available to help check road conditions

LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. - When the weather is frightful, the Missouri Department of Transportation has several tools available for motorists to check road conditions before they travel in the Kansas City region or statewide.

A Kansas City Scout App is available to help motorists in the KC metro region travel roads more safely. The app, which is available for free for iPhone, iPad and Android can be found at www.kcsout.net, and works with MoDOT's statewide Traveler Information Map but offers more specific information for the KC area including:

  • Real Time average speeds in a color-coded map
  • Incident information with a detailed description of the incident if the icon is clicked
  • Short-term road work (MoDOT or KDOT)

MoDOT's Traveler Information App, available for free at the iPhone App Store and Android Marketplace, offers real-time views of road conditions for all Missouri's interstates and major highways. Conditions are color-coded, giving users accurate information at a glance. Computer users can also go directly to http://www.modot.org/kansascity to view the Traveler Information Map online.  

"No matter how you prefer to get your information about road conditions, the best advice we have for motorists to stay safe when the weather is bad is to stay home if you can," said KC District Engineer Dan Niec. "MoDOT will do everything we can to keep the roads safe, but if you don't have to travel in bad weather, then stay home."

Motorists can also call the toll-free customer service center at 888-ASK-MODOT (888-275-6636). Customer service representatives are available to take your call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They can give you current road conditions for anywhere in the state.
