5-1-1 System Upgraded


By Rochelle Dean


An upgrade to the current 5-1-1 traffic information system may help you get around a little bit easier.

The new improvements include traffic camera images, interactive maps of traffic back ups, an estimated travel time calculator, and weather information you can access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

DOT officials say the information can be accessed through a computer tablet, on your phone or simply by dialing 5-1-1 to find the easiest way to get around traffic jams.
