KDOT Resources To Be Unavailable To Public Wednesday & This Weekend

Maintenance activities will cause interruption to KDOT’s websites and phone services Wednesday and again this weekend.

On Wednesday, from approximately 8 a.m. until noon, the 511 Map website (, will display only the base map due to computer maintenance. While the site will be publicly accessible, none of the information (construction, road conditions, and camera and electronic sign views) will be available during this time. All other links from the site will be accessible. KDOT’s traveler information portal, KanDrive (, will also be accessible.

Maintenance work this weekend on the electrical system of the Eisenhower State Office Building (ESOB) in Topeka will necessitate turning off all power in the building. As a result, the Kansas Department of Transportation Web and phone services will not be accessible to the public on Saturday, July 23, beginning at 4:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

Web services that won’t be available during this time include KDOT’s website (, KanDrive (, KDOT’s traveler information portal, and the 511 Web site (, which provides road condition and work zone information. Also, there will be no KDOT phone services at the ESOB.

The Kansas 511 phone system will be accessible to the public by calling 511 from any phone in Kansas or 1-866-511-KDOT (5368) from anywhere in the U.S. However, the information provided won’t be updated during the time there is no power. Since this is occurring during the weekend, construction and road condition information should be mostly current even though it’s not being updated. The weather information will be updated and current as usual.

KDOT’s online community – KTOC – won’t be affected by the power interruption. It will still be accessible at

KDOT apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. However, the work is necessary to ensure efficient electrical operation of the ESOB.
