(BPRW) Celebrate Memorial Day in a Big Way: Use FL511 to Navigate to Your Destinations

(Black PR Wire)  TALLAHASSEE -- Memorial Day is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season for cultural events.  Many people choose to hold picnics, sports events and family gatherings on this weekend. Additionally, many people see Memorial Day weekend as an opportunity to go on a short vacation or visit family and friends. This can cause some congestion on many of our roadways and highways.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is sharing the free information in this toolkit to remind drivers how the Florida 511 Traveler Information System can help them find the best and safest route to and from their destinations.

Florida 511 is a free service provided by FDOT that helps drivers arrive safely and with fewer delays. The user-friendly and customizable system provides real-time traffic information and lets drivers know what conditions they may face.

Please share this material with your network and on any of your communications platforms. Also, subscribe to @FL511_State, the Florida 511 Statewide Twitter feed, as well as any of the regional or roadway-specific  Twitter feeds (#FL511), such as @FL511_Northeast, @FL511_I10 and @FL511_I95 and provide your followers with up-to-the-minute traffic information.
