We have received quite a few questions lately from cell phone users who have had trouble accessing our Seattle traffic flow map.
Our answer: Don't access the Seattle traffic site with your phone, it's not designed for it, it works, it's just not very easy to use. However, we do have an alternative for you. Did you know that we have a version of the Seattle traffic site designed specifically for small screens? We also provide mountain pass reports and ferry schedules.
We designed this version of the Web site to be as simple as possible to make sure it can work in as many phones as possible, let us know if it doesn't work on yours.
Access it now: wsdot.wa.gov/small/ (or better yet, type it into your phone's browser)
Of course, this same information is available if you call 511, but sometimes it's nice to see those reassuring colors on the flow map for yourself.
