Motorists are encouraged to “Know Before You Go” by checking conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com.
511PA is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 860 traffic cameras. Users can also see plow truck statuses and travel alerts along a specific route using the “Check My Route” tool.
511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website. Also, be sure to sign up for timely, life-saving messages from the NWS at Alert PA. These alerts can be sent directly to your cellular phone, so you have time to avoid winter weather conditions that could lead to impacts.
