New VTrans website feature

VTrans has launched a new feature on its website called “VTransparency” that enables a site visitor to search out projects taking place in communities all over the state. Here’s how it works, access the feature here and you will be prompted to search for a specific address, or city/town. After you search, each project taking place will appear with a yellow dot on the map. By clicking on the dot, project information appears giving project details. From this window additional information can be accessed by clicking on the “detailed report” link. You can also view pavement surface conditions and bridge conditions using this feature.

It’s a neat new tool to take a look at what other municipalities are working on around the state.
