Department_of_Transportation_Logo [1]The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) has launched a construction project web site and a statewide 511 Twitter feed to inform travelers about road conditions in the state.

Both are part of the broader Wisconsin 511 website [2].

The website, projects.511wi.gov [3], provides real-time travel information such as closures and travel times, project news, schedules, updates and detailed maps. The site also offers resources like project contacts, tools for impacted businesses and links to alternative transportation options.

Travelers following Wisconsin 511’s Twitter, @511WI [4], are updated with information about construction activities, incidents, crashes and closures in the state. Other 511 Twitter feeds are also available, allowing travelers to choose which provides the best information for the route they travel.
