The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT)’s Highway Advisory Radio (HAR) station in Hampton Roads has moved to a new station. Traffic information is now airing on 1680AM.
Previously located at 610AM, the Highway Advisory Radio station advises the public of current traffic conditions on Hampton Roads highways, 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The transition to 1680AM began early last week and was completed by Friday, May 4, on the Southside and the Peninsula.
“VDOT is always looking for ways to improve upon the traffic and travel information system. The change to a higher frequency could potentially improve the sound quality of the broadcasts,” said Dwayne Cook, VDOT Regional Operations Director, Eastern Region.
