Launch Traffic Mapping Application

MnDOT's Traffic Mapping Application is an interactive web tool that allows users to explore spatial traffic data

Due to the LRS project, background route updates have not been made in this application since 2013. An update to this application is scheduled for Summer of 2019.

The interactive map allows you to select where you would like to view data at a larger scale. Many layers are scale dependent and will not appear until the map is zoomed in far enough. Once in the Traffic Mapping Application viewer, click the buttons in the right of the menu bar to help locate data and expand viewer functionality.
