Tennessee has become the 24th state to provide a 511 statewide traveler information service. Drivers who dial 511 or go to www.TN511.com will receive real-time road and weather conditions, including congestion, incidents, construction and closures.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation has added the 511 voice-activated system to TDOT SmartWay, the state’s intelligent transportation system, which offers camera links, traffic information and weather-related road conditions online on the department’s homepage.
