If while walking on Arizona Avenue you stumble upon a major excavation project, whip out your smart phone to learn what's about to be built.
The city announced on Wednesday the launch of its mobile map that pinpoints the location of every public and private construction project in the city.
To access the map, type into the phone's Internet browser m.smconstructs.org, then select "Project Maps: What's Around Me.'"
The new mobile site "allows users to determine their exact location in relation to construction projects in order to adjust their routes accordingly," said city spokeswoman Robin Gee in a press release.
Some cell phone users can access the site using that URL if their devices are equipped with Adobe Flash (sorry, iPhone users).
"The site is supposed to automatically detect your mobile device," but is not working on iPhones because of an apparent bug, said city spokeswoman Robin Gee. "We have let our Internet team know."
She suggested using m.smconstructs.org to get the mobile site directly.
In addition to the map, the mobile and desktop sites includes videos and live-streaming feeds, and weekly traffic updates and alerts.
