KANSAS CITY, Mo. — KC Scout, the Kansas City-area traffic monitoring organization providing access to traffic cameras, real time messaging boards and traffic conditions website remained down Friday after it was struck by a cyberattack Thursday.

The service is a joint effort between the Missouri and Kansas Departments of Transportation.

In an update Friday afternoon, a spokesperson said the system remains "unavailable until further notice" as employees work to bring systems back online.

"KC Scout took immediate action to shut down all systems as a protective measure," the spokesperson said. "This protective measure means all real-team cameras and information boards are not functioning."

An investigation into the cyberattack continues and no word on how long restoration efforts will take.
