Florida 511 Service Launched

The Florida Department of Transportation launched its 511 service this week. Now Florida travellers can access up-to-date reports that will make their peregrinations safer and quicker. The service was implemented with $10 million in grant funding from the Federal Highway Administration.

The service will alert drivers to the locations of highway repair work, lane and road closures, and other problems that cause gridlock. The service provides alternate routes and other information that will assist travellers in avoiding unecessary delays, and will make disaster evacuation more efficient.

The service can be accessed by telephone while you're on the road. If you're planning travel in Florida, you can also access all of the pertinent information on-line as well, at
