To help make decisions regarding winter travel, motorists are encouraged to “Know Before You Go” by checking conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 860 traffic cameras. Users can also see plow truck statuses and travel alerts along a specific route using the “Check My Route” tool.
Any citizen can submit/report road issues to PennDOT online via the home site: http://www.penndot.gov/Pages/default.aspx. Click on the big, long, green tab “maintenance concerns…click here” and fill out the form.
This is much easier and will likely produce faster results than the old fashioned way of calling between the hours of 9 am – 5 pm. Monday through Friday.
If you encounter a road concern, please report it.
