State Travelers Get Help From The State

Saint Paul - Travelers in Minnesota now have an improved view of all construction, maintenance and traffic incidents that affect their trips in the state. Mn/DOT's statewide travel information website,, has been upgraded and now includes an easier way to learn about future construction and maintenance projects.
The new Google-based site map is scrollable and will allow users to see map, satellite and hybrid views of the information.
"Better and clearer information will help motorists make plans to avoid delays and spend less time in traffic," said Todd Kramascz, 511 Project manager. "This new site is the next generation of real-time traveler information."
The site also allows users to choose between route-specific reports or a general map view. A scrolling banner highlights traffic incidents at a glance and a zoom tool allows viewers to enlarge or reduce map size.

The new site is available by logging on to
