Telogis Navigation has been updated with all the Pope-related road closures to keep you and your teams trucking.

From Tuesday through Saturday (Sept. 22-26), Pope Francis will be visiting the nation’s capital, New York City and Philadelphia, undoubtedly bringing with him a slew of traffic headaches for commercial drivers.

Luckily your teams are running Telogis Navigation, and the exceptions for the DC, Manhattan and Philadelphia areas have already been added to the system for the visit so you’ll be able to avoid snarls and road closures.

Here’s the current list. Stay safe out there.
