KC Scout Launches New Website In Time for Holiday Travel

LEE’S SUMMIT – Over the weekend, KC Scout quietly launched an updated website that makes scouting traffic even easier. With a clean layout and a central emphasis on the traffic map, the new site also offers real-time streaming video on more than 200 cameras covering 300 miles of metro highways.

The launch ties to one of the busiest travel times on metro roadways, the holiday season. Drivers can access the map and camera to review their travel route into --and out of -- the Kansas City area before they hit the road.

Last year KC Scout ran a comprehensive customer survey to review the services and technology they offer metro drivers. Among the findings Scout’s Live Traffic Map is the most helpful item on kcscout.net by approximately 64 percent of respondents, followed by Scout’s snapshot traffic cameras (44 percent). One of the more common requests to improve the site included adding motion video.

KC Scout is Kansas City's bi-state traffic management system, jointly operated and funded by the Kansas and Missouri Departments of Transportation, is designed to lessen traffic jams by improving rush-hour speeds, increasing safety by decreasing the number of rush-hour accidents and improving emergency response to traffic situations by clearing incidents quickly and safely. Scout manages traffic on more than 300 miles of continuous freeways in the greater Kansas City metropolitan area.
