Find out where the roads are closed, before hitting the road


Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta.

The record: National traffic and road closure information.

Why you’d want it: To be on top of your summer road trip plans and limit any roadblocks — literally.

Where you get it: Go to www.fhwa.dot.gov/trafficinfo/index.htm. You can click on any state and then click on links for more specific information.

How much the record will cost: The information is free.
