Know Before You Go For current road conditions, including construction activity, motorists can call 511 or go online to TripCheck. com. A quick visit can help you avoid traffic congestion, work zone delays, or hazardous road conditions. Give yourself plenty of extra time. Construction zones, traffic jams, or other incidents can add delays. That extra time will help cut down on excessive speeding and tailgating.
Visit www.TripCheck.com and click on the Twitter page to learn more. TripCheck TV allows users to create a custom display of road condition information and camera images. Our agency partners with Waze, a crowdsourcing app that allows anonymous users to report traffic and weather information. ODOT integrates Waze reports into TripCheck to improve your travel experience. Travelers in Oregon can dial 511 to access the same immediate road and weather information available on TripCheck. (Note: 511 does not have access to Waze data.)
TripCheck information is also available via Twitter (@oregondot).
