MoDOT offers text alerts
Thu, 20 Dec 2012 15:07:32 GMT —
Missouri drivers now have a new way to find out road conditions.
You don't even need a smartphone ... just one that can receive text messages.
Signing up is easy. If you already have an E-update account, just login and add your provider information and cell phone number. That's it! If you're new to E-updates, create an account and choose which counties, routes and regions you want to know about.
Current E-update subscribers just need to go to the sign-in page and supply their cell phone number and provider name. Their subscriptions will carry over.
When there's trouble on a road or region you've added, whether it's weather-related or an incident, our staff will send notifications to everyone who's signed up. You'll get a short message telling you what's going on.
If you want to opt out of the service later, just log in to your account and remove your cell phone information.
A MoDOT E-update account is required and data charges may apply depending on your cell phone package.
