Florida’s 511 Traveler Information System
Florida’s 511 Traveler Information System is one of the most effective ways drivers can keep informed about roadway conditions during severe weather, evacuations and emergencies. Florida 511 partners with hundreds of agencies and organizations around the state and the Southeastern U.S., including seaports, tourism agencies, evacuation management agencies, regional transportation organizations, parking officials, major event venues, rest areas/weigh stations, other states’ 511 systems and other partners.
FDOT designed the 511 phone system to handle a large volume of calls. Depending on the volume of calls, some callers may get connected to a touch-tone only mode. You can also download Florida 511 app for Apple and Android devices to get access to the same information.
511 provides locally generated reports on: Traffic conditions, emergency info, road and bridge closures, toll suspensions, other travel alerts. 511 also provides AMBER, Silver and Blue Alerts (formerly known as Law Enforcement Officer or LEO Alerts).
