511 (Traffic Conditions)
Overview
Call 511 for FREE real-time traffic and travel information!  Get travel information and plan alternate routes.  When hurricanes, other severe weather and natural disasters threaten Florida, a quick phone call to 511 provides free information about real-time traffic condition, alternate routes, road closures and major evacuation routes on every interstate highway in the state and Florida's Turnpike.  511 is a valuable tool to assist residents, visitors, business owners and emergency responders in avoiding, responding and recovering from disasters.

Using 511 in Hurricane and Disaster Response
One of the innovate features of the 511 system is the ability for callers to get information specific to their geographic location.  The Central Florida, Northeast Florida, Southeast Florida, Southwest Florida and Tampa Bay areas have regional 511 services that provide even more in-depth roadway information for those areas.  You can easily transfer between 511 regional systems and the overall statewide system by listening to and following the voice prompts on the main menu.  Visit fl511.com.
