MDT's New Traveler System

MDT is excited to share our new Traveler information system. The new enhanced interactive map and mobile application includes features to help you plan your travel.

Why are we changing?

Our previous traveler information is built on outdated technology and has reached end of life. With the move to a new system, we can offer new features and a system built on supported technology.

Here are just a few of the features of the new system:

  • clickable roadways to display conditions
  • the ability to save favorite cameras or roadways
  • enhanced map layers
  • route planning
  • weather forecasts
  • details on rest areas, sign messages, construction and alerts
  • My511 signup for alerts and condition updates

Check out the new system or read more about the features below.

Route Planning:

Our new system includes a route planner so you can plan your travel and see details about rest areas, construction or events along the way.

Customize Your Experience

Using My511 you can create an account, login and sign up for texts and/or emails or alerts and changing conditions.
