MoDOT improves route selection for Gateway Guide alerts

ST. LOUIS - This weekend, the Missouri Department of Transportation will be making some behind-the-scenes improvements to MoDOT's Gateway Guide alert system.

            These improvements should give users of the free alert system the ability  to be more precise on specific routes for e-mails and texts on lane and road closures along state roadways.

            Currently, users can select road sections based on common interchanges between major state roadways. With the update, users will be able to select sections of roads, based on their regular commutes. Routes may be customized based on the day of the week or the time of day, so users can get information about daily commutes or weekly trips sent directly to their e-mail or phones.

            To sign up for updates and create routes, visit: http://www.gatewayguide.com/email-alerts.html. To view a video about selecting your route for the Gateway Guide alert system, please visit http://youtu.be/WZZb0Wxwr7Q.

            Current alert users should not see any significant interruptions as the department moves them to the new system. They should receive an e-mail or text after they have moved to the improved alert system to let them know they can now refine the information they get from Gateway Guide.

            "The changes to the alert system should be minor but be able to give users more control on the information they get. They can select a roadway or a portion of a roadway to get better information on road conditions during their commutes, or for trips they take regularly," said Jeanne Olubogun, MoDOT St. Louis district traffic engineer.

            MoDOT's Gateway Guide provides roadway information for state roadways in the greater St. Louis region. It includes camera views, roadway conditions and roadwork and crash information for most major state roadways in St. Louis city and county, as well as St. Charles, Franklin and Jefferson counties.
