MassTraveler.com is a free public information website at the University of Massachusetts Amherst Regional Traveler Information Center (RTIC) made possible in a cooperative effort with the MassDOT. And now in addition to live webcam feeds seen at left, the website features a new application that will allow drivers to see all the travel and construction advisories in the state at a glance.
MassDOT Travel Advisories is a web page with an interactive map, with every advisory in the state marked with an orange traffic cone icon. Click on any cone for information about that location.
Information about each advisory is provided by MassDOT though their Event Reporting System under the Massachusetts Open Data Initiative.
The RTIC’s MassTraveler website provides links to webcams at key intersections in the Pioneer Valley; a bus tracker for the UMass bus system; travel advisories; current traffic conditions on Routes 9 and 116; and a link to Mass511.
