The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) encourages concert, convention and festivalgoers to become fans of the new Florida 511 Traveler Information System!

FDOT recently unveiled improvements to the Florida 511 system with a new website, mobile app and phone system headlining exciting changes geared to greatly enhance the user experience.

As Florida’s official source for traffic and travel information, the new Florida 511 system provides up-to-the-minute information on Florida’s interstates, toll roads and other metropolitan roadways, allowing motorists to find real-time updates on crashes, congestion, construction and more. Florida 511 delivers traffic information via mobile apps for both Android and Apple devices, FL511.com, a toll-free call to 511, or by following any of the 13 statewide, regional or roadway-specific Twitter feeds.

Among other new Florida 511 system features are point-to-point travel times, turn-by-turn navigation and severe weather alerts. On the FL511.com website, individuals can also sign up for time- and route-specific text messages or email alerts.
