New online traffic map from the Post
Dr. Gridlock today rolls out an upgraded online live traffic tool that aims to make it easier to identify and avoid bottlenecks before you head out, whether it's to the office or a Thanksgiving trip.
The new traffic page, accessible from the Post's transportation portal, shows a real-time map of the region's major roads, color-coded by their current condition (the red, yellow and green need to explanation). Hover over a spot and you'll get current speeds on those roads, down to particular exits.
It's also your point of access to live traffic cameras all around the region.
And in addition to scoping out individual road segments, you can input a particular route. You can even save the route and have alerts directed to your email or mobile device when problems arise.
Make it the one thing you check before you grab your keys.
