To help alert motorists to road construction, the city of Colorado Springs has teamed with Waze (waze.com), a free, real-time crowdsourced navigation app. It's especially timely, given the city is launching projects under ballot measure 2C approved by voters last year, which increased sales tax to fund $50 million worth of road projects for five years, the city said in a news release.
Now, the city will rely on Waze, the GoCoSprings App and the Cone Zone map on coloradosprings.gov to provide information about the location and impact of road construction across the city.
"This free partnership with Waze allows citizens to more efficiently plan their commutes and ideally avoid road construction," Jay Anderson, citizen engagement specialist for the city, said in the release. Learn more at waze.com/ccp. To download the free Waze app for iOS or Android, visit waze.com.
