Pennsylvania Traveler Information Enhanced with Revamped 511PA Website


Pennsylvania’s 511PA traveler information system is now offering motorists better access to traffic information with a new and improved website, as well as improved phone and personal-alert systems.

The redesigned website provides free, 24-hour travel information on 40,000 miles of state roads plus the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The original site offered information for the 2,900 miles that make up the “core system” of interstates and select U.S. routes.

Information on current traffic conditions has improved with real-time traffic-speed data now available for 15,000 roadway miles, expanded from 659.The site also now offers access to 30 additional traffic cameras from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, in addition to the 650 already available across the state.

In addition to the website and phone options, motorists can sign up to receive personal travel alerts through email and text messages. The alerts can be customized by roadway, time of day and days of the week. Visit for more information.
