The Kansas Department of Transportation’s traveler information website, KanDrive.org, has been updated to provide motorists more user-friendly and timely details so they can make the best decisions each time when traveling throughout the state.

“The new KanDrive website is easier to use and includes more features that will help drivers as they travel Kansas highways,” said Secretary Julie Lorenz. “Having access to the latest road condition information is important for travelers as it helps people get where they want to go and keeps the Kansas economy moving.”

KanDrive users can now –

  • Create personalized accounts to save favorite routes/areas;
  • Sign up for email alerts on specific highways;
  • View a commercial vehicle mode for truck drivers;
  • Share individual event reports, road conditions or cameras through Facebook, Twitter or email.

The updated KanDrive site delivers information to users quickly and clearly and is mobile-friendly as it adapts to screens of all sizes. Impacts to traffic are updated 24/7, including maintenance and construction activities, winter highway conditions, flooded roadways, incidents and crashes affecting traffic and closed highways.

The commercial vehicle mode for truck drivers allows companies to create text/email alerts designed around highly traveled routes, weigh stations and rest areas. Details also are provided on bridge heights, weight capacity, roadway widths and speeds.

Users in Wichita and Kansas City will be able to access WICHway and KC Scout directly from within KanDrive. WICHway users also will have the ability to switch back and forth between Wichita and statewide views.
