Input Sought on Future of Arizona Traveler Information System Website

First step in development of new website

PHOENIX – As the Arizona Department of Transportation gets underway with a project to redevelop the 511 Traveler Information System website, input from the public will help guide the process.

By reaching out to drivers and users of the current site, ADOT hopes to create an outline for a redesigned site that better meets the expectations and needs of travelers around the state. This is the first major revision planned for the site since 2010.

The Traveler Information System – both the website and the 511 phone line – are designed to provide accurate, up-to-date information for drivers and travelers. The system provides data on crashes, construction-related restrictions, weather, planned closures and other events that impact mobility around Arizona.

Last month, there were nearly 54,000 visits to the website. Usage typically spikes during the winter storm season and when summer monsoon storms hit the state.
