CONSTRUCTION SEASON IS HERE!

SIGN UP FOR FREE TEXT MESSAGE AND EMAIL ALERTS!

DUNMORE (May 5, 2006) – Just in time for the summer travel season, PennDOT’s District 4 reminds drivers that it offers a free email and text message service that alerts motorists of traffic roadwork, crashes, and other delays as they occur.

While it is District 4’s policy not to perform restrictive work on high-volume roadways during peak daylight travel times, at this time of year PennDOT’s county maintenance and construction crews may be out performing emergency work or major construction projects at any time.

By visiting the PennDOT District 4 website at www.neparoads.com, travelers may sign up for the popular email alert service which delivers traffic and construction alerts during business hours, Monday through Friday. Subscribers may select the interstate or county in District 4 (Lackawanna, Luzerne, Wayne, Wyoming, Pike, and Susquehanna counties) which interests them most.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of the text messaging service, the once-comprehensive list is expanding to include selections that will cater to subscribers’ needs. CURRENT SUBSCRIBERS ARE URGED TO GO ONLINE TO UPDATE THEIR PREFERENCES.

A weekly roadwork report is also posted to the District 4 website and updated regularly. This same document can also be emailed to subscribers.

These services complement the electronic message boards along the highway and Highway Advisory Radio to help motorists avoid congested areas.
