The Illinois Tollway is sharing data with the popular navigation app Waze to get news about traffic backups and closed lanes out faster to road users. Since February, the Tollway has been receiving data from Google-owned Waze on traffic incidents such as debris on the road, stalls and potholes. The Tollway has in turn been sharing with Waze any incidents related to lane blockages, including crashes, stalls and the locations of Tollway help trucks, said Elyse Morgan, the Tollway’s traffic operations center manager. In mid-May, the Tollway also will begin providing information on roadwork to Waze.
