CALTRANS UPGRADES TRIP PLANNING WEBSITE FOR CALIFORNIA MOTORISTS
Motorists can now access planned lane closure information before they leave home
SACRAMENTO - Caltrans has upgraded its website to give California motorists access to planned lane closures on highways statewide so they can make more informed route decisions and reduce travel times.
“Thanks to this upgrade, motorists can plan to avoid scheduled lane closures on statewide routes before they even get on the road,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty. “This information will allow travelers to adjust their trip plan so they can get where they’re going more quickly.”
Real-time statewide route information is easily accessible from an interactive Internet search site at www.lcswebreports.dot.ca.gov/lcswebreports/
Online users can search for planned lane closures statewide, by region, county or route number, on specific dates, during certain times, and by type of closure.
