The county this week added these and a few other new features to My Arlington, the app for iPhone and Android devices that launched in February.

Users can now use the app to access real-time information on paving and milling operations on county-owned streets, view traffic camera feeds and get traffic updates using data from Google Waze, said Shannon Whalen McDaniel, a communications manager for Arlington County.

“County staff enters data into Waze daily, noting if a street is partially or fully closed, along with an estimated time of completion,” Whalen McDaniel added.

Other recent additions to the My Arlington app include:

  • Voting information, with Arlington polling and precinct locations.
  • A county staff search directory.
  • Information on development projects with county site plans.
  • Notices about stop work orders and unsafe buildings.
