TravelMidwest Coverage Area Changes -- 5/16/2022

The Travel Midwest website has an updated geographic coverage area.  This change reflects the fact that our neighboring states have their own Traveler Information/511 systems, and therefore support of a multi-state traveler information system is no longer necessary.  This change will allow us to better focus our resources on Illinois and the immediately surrounding area in order to improve traveler information and traffic operations.

The following map shows the old coverage areas of and the new coverage areas.
