I-25 travel app available
The Colorado Department of Transportation launched information about the Interstate 25 corridor on CDOT Mobile, a free Smartphone mobile application. CDOT Mobile provides real-time information about highway conditions and traffic.
The application provides speeds, road conditions, road closures, construction activities and feeds from CDOT’s closed-circuit television cameras for the I-25 corridor between Colorado Springs to the south and E-470 to the north.
It also allows travelers to select and save their “favorites,” providing ready access to travel times for their regular commuting route. Information that is available on COtrip.org such as speeds, cameras and road conditions for the entire state is accessible in the CDOT Mobile map.
To download CDOT Mobile, text “CDOT” to 25827, go to www.cotrip.mobi or search CDOT Mobile in your App Store. To access the I-25 interface scroll down and click on the “Check Out I-25” bar.
