Houston Traffic Updates- Thanks Channel 13
Written by greg on October 28, 2012
ABC 13 has a traffic condition and travel time update available to Houston commuters and it is a very useful tool. You can access the traffic conditions by going to the website TranStar and find out how long your commute will be and the average speeds in different sections of the roadway.
The news source also has a app that you can download to your iPhone or android phone to see live weather conditions and traffic conditions in the Houston area. Click here to get the app or go to:
The website also provides average gas prices, various weather resources, additional traffic resources in addition to the up-to-date news reporting that they are known for.
You can always tune in to KTRK Channel 13 on TV to get up to date weather and traffic conditions in addition to great news. One feature I like is the freeway cameras that you can access on the website. All the major highways feeding the Houston area are listed and you can click on a link to a highway and see a traffic jam of the actual traffic in somewhat real-time.
All of us have learned when we can travel most effectively particularly during rush-hour traffic on high traffic highways. Many leave earlier and many delay their departure to avoid the rush hour traffic Houston is famous for. The tools provided by ABC 13 certainly help you and your family get to your destination timely and hopefully safely.
I applaud the station for their community service and urge everyone to take advantage of this free and very helpful resource for your commuting and travel in the Houston area.
