The Kansas Department of Transportation will be testing the capacity of its popular online 511 service today (TUE). Computer software will attempt to overwhelm the online roadmap with log-in requests, so that KDOT can see if it needs to make any upgrades to its server capacity. Barb Blue, a KDOT spokeswoman, says that during the test, the maps at the 511 Traveler Information Map won't bear much of a resemblance to how the roads really look today (TUE):
The test will begin at 9 o'clock this (TUE) morning and will last through 4 pm. The 511 Traveler Information telephone line will list current weather and driving conditions while the test is taking place.
