Current Traffic and Construction Information Online

Don’t you hate being blindsided by a detour when you’re just minding your own business driving down the autobahn? Me too, so I went on a mission to find highway traffic and construction information online. At least then, it would be possible to know what you’re getting into when you decide to go on a what you think is going to be a three hour road trip. These sites are the best I could find. They have interactive maps, where you can zoom in and out and click on the traffic signs to see how the construction will affect your journey.

Belgium:

This is the only site I could find for Belgian Road Works. But it’s pretty comprehensive. It even gives expected completion dates for construction. The key word is “expected”, but we can hope.

Germany: http://www.verkehrsinfo.de

This site was my favorite that I tested for German roads. The map is interactive if you click on it. You can also get summaries by region or highway.

Other sites I tried are http://www.verkehrsinformation.de and http://www.aral.de/ which both work, but they don’t have the cool map.

Netherlands: http://www.routenet.nl/traffic.aspx and http://www.onderweg.nl/ These sites are similar to each other. There might be a better site out there, but I haven’t found it yet.

So check these sites out and hopefully you won’t be caught by surprise again on the autobahns, and if you have any sites that you use, let us know in the comments.
