Orange traffic cone symbols appear on roads with ongoing construction. The map also displays other potential causes of traffic delays - such as accidents, inclement weather and special events - and useful information for travelers, such as rest stops and local weather forecasts. For an overview of local traffic due to construction and other delays, select the show-speed check box.
