New Streaming Video Gives 511PA Users Better Traffic Information

Harrisburg – PennDOT announced today that streaming video from its more than 700 traffic cameras is now available on 511PA.

PennDOT recently upgraded its 511PA website and mobile application to allow for the continuously streaming footage. Previously, the site and mobile application were limited to providing real-time conditions using still images that were refreshed every five seconds.

“Our 511 system puts travel information at drivers’ fingertips and helps them make travel decisions before and during their trip,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “The new streaming video shows real-time traffic flow to help give motorists an even better idea of what to expect on our roadways.”

The streaming video is the latest improvement to the 511PA service. In May, PennDOT announced a 511PA smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices that provides hands-free and eyes-free travel alerts for the nearly 40,000 miles of road that PennDOT maintains as well as the Pennsylvania Turnpike and select New Jersey and West Virginia roadways. Application users can also view the streaming video, travel alerts and more before they travel.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting www.511PA.com<http://www.511PA.com>. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts and traffic speed information. 511PA is also available by calling 5-1-1, and by signing up for personal alerts or following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.

PennDOT reminds drivers to “know before you go” and not call or look at any of 511PA’s services while driving.
