Driving on I-25, there’s an app for that

I25AppScreenshotWaiting on the morning DJ to give a traffic update about the I-25 commute from Colorado Springs to Denver? Wait no more.

The Colorado Department of Transportation recently launched the I-25 corridor CDOT Mobile, a free smartphone mobile app.

CDOT Mobile will give travelers real-time information on highway conditions and traffic.

“We first launched CDOT Mobile in September 2012 for the I-70 corridor and have experienced great success with 50,000 users to date,” said Ryan Rice, CDOT director of operations.  “By adding a large portion of the I-25 corridor to CDOT Mobile, more Colorado travelers – particularly commuters — can take advantage of the real-time information. With more informed drivers, we can make our transportation system more productive, safe and efficient.”

The I-25 mobile app will list posted speeds, road conditions, road closures, construction activities and feeds from CDOT’s closed circuit television cameras for the I-25 corridor between Colorado Springs to the south and E-470 to the north (past 120th Avenue).

Those making the Springs/Denver commute regularly can save their “favorites,” which will give them instant access to travel times for their regular commuting route.  Information that is currently available at www.cotrip.org such as speeds, cameras and road conditions for the entire state is already accessible in the CDOT Mobile map.

CDOT intends to add routes to the mobile app program. The app development is part of a five-year, public-private partnership with the Colorado-based, urHub.

To download CDOT Mobile, text “CDOT” to 25827, go to www.cotrip.mobi or search CDOT Mobile app store, then click on “Check Out I-25″ bar.

  1. It looks like there is more work to be done on the I25 portion of the app. It isn’t as informative as the I70 section.
