Carrollton Launches New Site with Real-Time Construction and Traffic Updates
October 20, 2016 /
The City of Carrollton now offers a new communication tool to keep residents aware of any traffic shifts or delays caused by both City-managed and TxDOT-managed construction projects. A new Facebook page, @CarrolltonRoads, delivers real-time updates posted directly from the streets of Carrollton. Borne out of a desire to keep residents and visitors armed with the latest information before they travel to or within Carrollton, the posts are made in real time. Increased traffic congestion is inescapable in times of growth, and Carrollton is 127,000 strong and growing. Crews will report directly from the site through posts on Facebook which then automatically populate a scrolling feed on the City’s enhanced website that launched earlier this year.
