SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Transportation has developed a smartphone application called UDOT Traffic, which aims to give travelers important road information at their fingertips.

The traffic app has several different features, including a detailed map, alerts, weather and mountain pass information. All data come from the UDOT Traffic Operations Center, which provides 24/7 monitoring for roads around the state.

The map contains cameras, incidents/planned events, construction, overhead freeway signs, or variable message signs, and traffic congestion. With the smartphone, users can zoom to common locations, search a certain address or use the current location.

More information can be found at www.udot.utah.gov.
