The Iowa Department of Transportation is pleased to announce the launch of My Reports, the latest traveler information tool available on the IADOT 511 Website. My Reports personalizes your 511 experience by letting you see traffic reports that are relevant to the highways you travel most often.
My Reports lets you:
Using My Reports is simple. Just visit our Full Feature 511 Website, click on the "Show List Views" button above the map legend, then enter the beginning and ending locations of the route you wish to travel. You can even right-click on the map to choose your locations. My Reports will generate a customized report for your chosen route that includes traffic reports that affect your route, driving directions and estimated travel time.
My Reports even lets you save your routes for easy future reference. To save routes, simply create a free My Reports account by clicking the "Save this Route" link in a Route Report, or the "Start here" link in the box at the top of the screen.*
With My Reports, you can quickly see if there is any roadwork, accidents, or other traffic reports that could affect your daily commute, trip to the grocery store, or anywhere else you want to go.
In addition, you can now set alerts for your saved routes, and receive alerts by text or email message when an incident is reported on your route. Just click on the gray bell icon to the left of any saved route to sign up for specific days and times you'd like to receive alerts about your route
* Learn more about creating routes and My Reports accounts on the My Reports help page, which is also accessible by clicking the "Need Help?" link at the bottom of every My Reports page.
