With the World Series starting tomorrow in Kansas City, thousands of people will be flocking to the Truman Sports Complex and to watch parties all over Kansas City. A lot of them will be from out of town. This means higher traffic volumes and above average congestion.
To navigate work zones, unexpected incidents and traffic conditions, the first stop for any traveler should be MoDOT's Traveler Information Map. The map is available as an online version and as an app for iPhones, Android phones and tablets. It shows road closures, unexpected incidents, weather-related road conditions and even weather radar.
If you're wondering how congested your route might be, the map's traffic layer will tell you. Green means everything's running smoothly, yellow means traffic is moving below posted speed limits and red means things have come to a stop.
The online version of the map is located at http://traveler.modot.org/map/ and the app can be found in the Apple app store or Google Play by typing "MoDOT" in the search field.
MoDOT wishes both Royals and Giants fans good luck in the World Series and reminds them to celebrate responsibly before, during and after the game. For more information, contact MoDOT's Customer Service Center at 1-888-ASK MoDOT (275-6636).
