TDOT Launches App to Help Drivers Navigate State Highways

Posted By on Mon, Dec 31, 2012 at 2:25 PM

The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has released the TDOT SmartWay Mobile app to provide drivers with up-to-the-minute traffic information.

The app's home screen shows a map, which will locate your current position. Buttons on the left side of the map may be pressed to show traffic speeds, accidents, road construction areas, road conditions, and message signs. There's even a button that shows still shots from cameras set up along state highways, so drivers can get an idea of how congested traffic may be. Another feature lists all the construction areas in the app user's vicinity and shows when that construction began and when it is expected to be complete.

The app is free and available for download in the Apple App Store and the Android Play Store.
