511 Traffic Systems in Massachusetts
Known as America's Traveler Information Telephone Number, 511 is the easy-to-remember (and easy-to-dial!) telephone number that travelers throughout much of America use to access traffic-related information.
511 helps travelers―even if they're just commuting to work―find the quickest and safest route possible. This cuts travel time, fuel costs, and vehicle emissions. A well-planned driving route can even help reduce the risk of an accident.
Fortunately, Massachusetts is one of the many states that has implemented 511.
How you access traffic-related information depends on the type of phone you use:
- From cell phones: Call 511.
- Metro Boston: (617) 986-5511.
- Central Massachusetts: (508) 499-5511.
- Western Massachusetts: (413) 754-5511.
While the official 511 Massachusetts website provides a wealth of information about 511 itself, you can always contact the Massachusetts Highway Department for answers to inquiries not covered on the website.Other Topics in This Section
