My Arlington App, Now New and Improved
In January, we released the My Arlington app, “a better way to connect with the County.” Now the tool to help County government better engage and communicate with the community is, well … even better.
In addition to the latest news from the County and Arlington Public Schools, and the option to receive alerts from the County and Metrobus and Metrorail, the new version of the mobile tool now features real-time traffic data, voting info, notices about stop work orders and more.
Real-time information is now available for paving and milling operations on County-owned roads, helping drivers to avoid traffic impacts. Road updates are provided using data from Waze, the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation tool.
“County staff enters data into Waze daily, noting if a street is partially or fully closed, along with an estimated time of completion,” said Shannon Whalen McDaniel, spokeswoman for the County Department of Technology Services.
Traffic camera views can also be accessed to help get a complete picture of road conditions.
County Staff Directory
The new and improved My Arlington app now also features the new and improved County Staff Directory. To find an employee, you can search by entering all or part of any field into the search field, or simply browse the listing.
Now you can view Information on development projects, complete with County site plans, all from the convenience of your phone.
