The Tennessee Department of Transportation has implemented 511 as a resource for travelers wanting information about road and travel conditions, weather conditions, incidents, and construction activities on interstate highways, state routes and U.S. routes within Tennessee. 511 is part of the Tennessee Department of Transportation SmartWay program.
By phone: Dial 5-1-1: The 511 system provides accurate, up-to-date information about statewide traffic congestion and incidents, weather conditions, and road construction on interstate highways, state routes and U.S. routes in Tennessee. From the 511 phone service, callers can request road conditions and closures for specific routes.
The Tennessee 511 phone system uses voice-activated technology and touch-tone technology. When you dial 511, the system will greet you and will present you with a menu of options.
By Internet: From the www.TN511.com web page, users have access to the statewide road conditions map, as well as the TDOT SmartWay cameras in the metropolitan areas of Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis, and soon Chattanooga.
