The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is giving travelers two new online tools to stay informed about travel conditions around the state – a new construction project website and a statewide 511 Twitter feed.
Visitors to the new 511 construction project web site can find real-time travel information, including closures and travel times, project news, schedules, updates and detailed maps. Additional resources such as project contacts, tools for impacted businesses and links to alternative transportation options are also available.
• Statewide travel information is also now available via Twitter at Wisconsin511@511WI. The statewide 511 Twitter site is in addition to five regional 511 Twitter sites that provide tweets related to travel in the north central, northeast, northwest, southeast or southwest regions of the state. Twitter users can select which 511 Twitter site best meets their travel information needs. Regular tweets will keep travelers updated on construction activities, incidents, crashes and closures throughout the state, according to WisDOT.
