JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Department of Transportation's online Traveler Information Map, located at http://maps.modot.mo.gov/tim/, has been helping drivers navigate work zones, snowy roads and flooded routes since 2007. Now it will do even more.
Radar imagery has been added to the online map. Fed from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the radar layers give a snapshot of weather conditions so travelers can see what's going on and what's on the way.
In addition, commercial truck drivers are now able to view height restrictions, commercial zones and oversized/over dimension information.
The look of the map has also changed. Although easy navigation of the map remains the same, it now loads quicker and it's easier to zoom in.
