DOTD reminds citizens of 511 Traveler Information System

BATON ROUGE -- As citizens return to their homes in Louisiana, the Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) reminds residents they can get the latest updates on road conditions by using the 511 Traveler Information System.

Travelers can access up-to-date information about weather-related road conditions, construction activities and other critical incidents by dialing 511 from their telephone. The voice-activated 511 Traveler Information System is available to most wireless and landline telephone users. Drivers calling from outside of the state can access Louisiana's 511 Traveler Information Service by calling 888-ROAD-511 (888-762-3511). Travelers can also access this information by visiting the 511 Traveler Information System Web site at www.511la.org.

DOTD keeps the system's construction and weather-related information updated as reports come in from local agencies, parishes and law enforcement officials.

For the latest information on Hurricane Gustav, you can visit emergency.louisiana.gov or call the state's emergency hotline at 1-866-288-2484 to listen to a recorded message with the most up-to-date information.
