MnDOT updates 511 info features
Minnesota’s 511 traveler information system that gives up-to-date information on weather-related road conditions and maintenance and construction projects now has an improved high bandwidth site, giving users more continuity and usability with the service, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
The 511 system, available online at 511mn.org or by phone at 511, helps motorists make better travel decisions.
The new 511 features include viewing traffic camera images in an album, allowing users to scroll from one camera to the next along their route. Also, when users click on an incident, it will be brought up in an album view with a description and map. The background images fade out. In addition, pages are now auto-refreshed when new information arrives that affect the current map.
