Alaska DOT rolls out new 511 system to aid in travel

The 511 system, which can be found on web, mobile app, or by telephone, was completely overhauled. According to Caitlin Frye, Northern Region Information Officer with DOT, the platforms most affected by the changes are web and mobile app.

Travelers who were subscribed to the previous 511 system will need to visit the 511 website to subscribe to the new service to continue receiving alerts.

Similarly, users of the old smartphone app should delete the old app and download the new one.
