Win in Traffic during the Miami Marlins Season Opener

TALLAHASSEE – Miami Marlins fans can win in traffic using the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) Florida 511 Traveler Information System as they head to the team’s season opener against the Atlanta Braves at Marlins Park on Tuesday, April 11.

Operated by FDOT, Florida 511 can help Marlins fans minimize delays with real-time traffic information. Fans can plan their route to Marlins Park before heading out by visiting the interactive roadway map on the user-friendly Florida 511 website and receive traffic incident alerts in English or Spanish.

In the Miami metro area, fans also can view traffic cameras on roads and intersections leading to Marlins Park. Cameras offer views of parts of Interstates 95, 195, 395; Florida’s Turnpike; U.S. 1 and U.S. 27; and State Roads A1A, 836, 874, 112 and 826.

Fans can also register on the mobile-friendly website for a free My Florida 511 personalized services account then create door-to-door routes to Marlins Park and other favorite destinations. Each route includes travel time estimates, traffic incident information and the ability to set up custom email or text alerts.

Before leaving the stadium, motorists can call 511 toll-free or check the free Florida 511 mobile app, available on Google Play or the Apple App Store, to check traffic or select an alternate route.

Florida 511 also offers motorists free, real-time traffic updates about important roadways from Twitter feeds (#FL511), including @FL511_I95, @FL511_95Express, @FL511_Turnpike and @FL511_Southeast.

FDOT encourages all drivers to check Florida 511 to travel safely and experience fewer delays. Check before leaving or have a passenger check to avoid using a phone while driving.
