Full Answer

The U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration website offers a list of national links for a quick glance at road and traffic conditions and access to local and state transit sites. Individuals click their corresponding state on the interactive map to gain access to more resources specific to the area being traveled within the state. The links include state traffic information websites, Department of Public Safety sites and government travel links that are organized by county, highway or city.

Department of Transportation pages are state specific, so each state has its own DOT page offering up information and links for upcoming and ongoing construction along the major highways and interstates. The DMV website provides information for drivers on how to avoid construction zones as well as how to handle it if they end up in one. The website lists valuable links for drivers on mapping out their route and warns drivers of speeding in construction zones to avoid injuring workers and hefty doubled fines.
