The Travel Midwest Alerts System

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announces the availability of the Travel Midwest Alerts System, a free service that provides email notifications of up to date traffic information on user-selected trips along the expressways in the Travel Midwest coverage area. You can define one or more trips using the Travel Midwest Trip Report, and then press the "Email Alerts" button to create an account to receive traffic information along that trip. You can select the email format, the days and times on which you wish to receive alerts, and the type of traffic information you wish to receive for each of your trips. You can also give a period during which alerts will not be sent (e.g., for a vacation) and a speed threshold so that you only receive alerts when the speed is below that value. Once you have created an Alerts System account, you can add, modify, or delete trips and their alert preferences at any time.

For more detail on defining trips and registering for email alerts, see Trips and Alerts Help.

Note: current users of the Illinois Traffic Alert System are encouraged to transition to the Travel Midwest Alerts System, which provides much better customization of the expressway sections for which you will receive notifications. The Illinois Traffic Alert System will be retired some time in 2017.
