Check out Connecticut's new interactive travel map.

Connecticut officials say they hope a new online traffic map helps reduce holiday congestion by letting travelers spot and avoid highway trouble areas.

The real-time interactive map went online in November at: www.ct.gov/dot/cttravel.

Connecticut officials say they want to spread the word about the map while travelers are on the road during the holiday season.

It lets users view highway incidents with images from traffic cameras, and is updated regularly with details about what's causing the congestion and when it's expected to ease.

Connecticut transportation Commissioner Joseph Marie says it's part of a network that also includes more than 300 traffic cameras and dozens of variable message signs.
