511 Traffic and Travel InformationState Stat
Kentucky's 511 Traffic and Travel Info line has now taken over one million calls! The service, launched statewide in November 2002, provides information about accidents, construction information and weather conditions that affect the roadways. Leon Walden, program coordinator for 511 for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, said, "We are very pleased with the response from the public. We are having more trips with drivers having information ahead of time to make their journeys safer." The traffic and travel information is available by dialing the three simple digits 5-1-1 or at www.511.ky.gov. The public is making informed decisions because of 511 before getting into a congested area.
