Get Real-Time WI Travel Info with New 511 Service
Motorists can now get up-to-the-minute travel information by either dialing 511 or going to a new Web site offered by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. The Web site, www.511wi.gov, provides travelers with traffic and road information on Wisconsin's main highways, including the Interstate system.
The new Web site features a map that graphically displays winter road conditions, traffic speeds, travel times, incidents, traffic camera images, road closures due to maintenance or construction, and potential future road closures.
Here's a screen shot of what the map looks like. If you check any of the features on the right, you can view them as you mouse over the map. Note the traffic camera shown below.
