TALLAHASSEE — Football fans traveling with their teams and Florida drivers dodging St. Petersburg Bowl game-day traffic should plan ahead for Bowl Season with the Florida 511 Traveler Information System from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).

Commuters can learn of incidents and congestion by checking the Florida 511 mobile app, which can be downloaded free on Google Play and the Apple App Store. Drivers can also check Florida 511 Twitter feeds including @FL511_TAMPABAY, @FL_511_I4 and @FL511_I75.

There are four convenient ways for motorists to receive traffic updates:
