The Florida Department of Transportation provides a service called the Florida 511 Traveler Information System.
The Florida 511 is designed to provide traffic and travel updates on major roadways in Florida to help residents stay safe, especially in times of emergency. The system gives emergency alerts, live updates on road closures and suspended tolls and provides personalized services like customized evacuation routes.
Download the FL511 mobile app to stay updated on all severe weather and alerts. Be sure you check it, and stay informed so that you know your travel information ahead of time and arrive at your destination safely.
