Announcing: The New Florida 511 Traveler Information System
Enhanced features and new look – same reliable real-time traffic and travel information
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is proud to announce a system-wide update to Florida’s 511 Traveler Information System; with a new mobile app, website and phone system geared to enhance the user experience.
Florida’s 511, the state’s official source for real-time traffic and travel information, has added state-of-the-art features across all of its platforms while continuing to provide incident, construction and congestion information on all of Florida’s interstates and toll roads, and other major metropolitan roadways.
The new, mobile-friendly website features driving directions, point-to-point travel times, and alternate routes, alongside the traffic information to which users are accustomed. FDOT is also introducing weather forecasts and severe weather alerts supplied by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The innovative new “My Cameras” feature allows registered users to store a list of traffic cameras that provide an important, live look into the conditions along their route.
The new Florida 511 mobile app features turn-by-turn navigation, with real-time traffic updates, alternate routes, and improved travel times on roadways, along with all of the added features coming to the new site, while the updated phone system will provide more streamlined call navigation menus, getting you to the information you need more efficiently.
Know before you go! Keep Florida moving with the new 511!
