511 Traffic Systems in West Virginia
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) gather a vast amount of traffic-related information from across the country. ITS aims to help people safely and quickly get to where they're going by letting them know about construction, accidents, and road closures.
Of course, drivers need a way to access this information, and that's where 511 comes into play. This simple, three-digit number allows drivers across the nation access this traffic-related information.
West Virginia has adopted the 511 traffic service.
The program allows drivers to check road and driving conditions related to the weather, traffic, and accidents by:
- Dialing 511.
- Downloading the program's free Android and iPhone app.
- Visiting the program's web site, www.WV511.org.
- Following West Virginia 511 on Twitter, @WV511.
