511 Traffic Systems in Minnesota
America's Traveler Information Phone Number, often referred to as 511, provides instant access to updated road information throughout Minnesota. By dialing 511, you can receive road and weather conditions, construction reports, and detour information.
The service is extremely driver friendly. Instead of pressing buttons, you can request a road report for the area you're driving in by saying the city's name. The service can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You can also download an app for your smartphone, so you can plan ahead before you hit the road.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation maintains a website, 511mn.org, with the same information. Here you can find the latest on road conditions, construction projects, weather forecasts, and major traffic incidents.
