Easier Access to Traffic Condition Details and New Personalized Traveler Alerts

The Alabama Department of Transportation has launched a new version of its ALGO Traffic app and website. This update provides travelers with an enhanced user experience by integrating more details and personalized information to help travelers avoid roadway congestion and get to their destination safely. ALGO Traffic also provides exclusive information about ongoing ALDOT construction projects and updates on the state’s Rest Areas and Welcome Centers and their amenities.

Some key updates include:

  •  The “Know Before You Go” Trip Planner – The new trip planner within the app will enable users to plan trips while considering live traffic events and camera feeds along their routes, aiding in making informed decisions about travel.
  •  Enhanced Traffic Event Information – The update will provide detailed information about traffic events that includes nearby camera feed if available. If multiple cameras are available, the “play all” function creates a video board that displays multiple cameras at once.
  • Personalized Traveler Alerts – This new function will allow users to set up an account and sign up for personalized traveler alerts. These alerts are completely customizable by geographic areas of interest, time of day and type of event such as construction, crash or weather.

“With the latest version of ALGO Traffic, travelers can expect a user-friendly experience that makes trip planning even more efficient,” said Amanda Deem, Public Information Officer.

ALDOT is committed to investing in the technology needed to maximize the use of our highway system and improve traffic information and safety for Alabama residents and visitors.

Motorists can visit or download the ALGO Traffic app to learn more about these updates and to subscribe to personalized traveler alerts.
