State Working On Smartphone App Using Traffic Data

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Department of Transportation is working on a free smartphone app using the traffic data it already collects.

According to WPLN, it's tentatively set to be available later this year.

The state already watches traffic congestion through a system of highway cameras, posting estimated drive times on interstate signs.

Gov. Bill Haslam said a smartphone program is meant to customize that information and put it in one place.

WPLN said the state has not publicized how much it will cost taxpayers.
