RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Virginia has launched a new website to provide information on road projects across the state.
The Virginia Department of Transportation portal, virginiaroads.org, for interactive maps that show latest paving conditions and construction projects.
Transportation Secretary Aubrey Layne says that a good transportation program depends on VDOT providing clear information that is relevant and available to the public. He said the portal turns complex data into knowledge, allowing the public to become more engaged with their transportation program.
The site also includes real-time traffic information, the status of snow plowing and other maps.
