BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News) – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has launched "Way to Geaux," a new hands-free, eyes-free smartphone application providing Louisiana travelers access to around-the-clock, real-time traffic and road condition updates. 

The "Way to Geaux" application can be downloaded on any iPhone or Android device by visiting either the iTunes App Store, or Google Play. The application is a free service provided by DOTD and is updated by the DOTD Traffic Management Centers.

The application works by automatically sending alerts to your smartphone after an incident is entered into the system. Operators will enter information on any lane-blocking incident located on interstate, U.S. or state highways that affects normal traffic flow or could present a possible hazard to motorists. In addition, operators will enter unplanned road work into the system if the closure results in congestion or presents a possible hazard.  

The application is designed to provide detailed information alerting motorists of congested areas and in some cases providing alternative routes. For more information and links to download the application, visit http://bit.ly/WayToGeaux.
