The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) has completed enhancements to make its 511 Traveler Information System user friendly and provide more information to those who access it through the app, on 511sc.org or by calling 511.
The updates include the ability to get directions, a faster-loading map, enhanced emergency alerts and an in-app feature that verbally notifies the driver of upcoming incidents such as a crash.
Other enhancements include:
- Satellite map overlay
- Layered information from the navigational app Waze
- Rest area and evacuation route markers
- Ability to save favorite cameras and points of interest
The statewide system provides real-time traffic information on all South Carolina interstate highways and some of the highways along the coast, as well as updates on construction, lane closures, crashes, congestion and severe weather affecting traffic.
