Traveling to one of the world’s largest motorcycle events can be a breeze with the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) Florida 511 Traveler Information System. The real-time traffic information provided by Florida 511 can help bikers arrive safely and with fewer delays while cruising to Daytona Bike Week events, which begin Friday, March 10 and end Sunday, March 19.
Riders can plan their route to Daytona Beach by visiting the interactive road map on the user-friendly FL511.com website for up-to-the-minute traffic information in English or Spanish about congestion, crashes, construction, closures and more. Riders can also view roadway cameras showing current driving conditions at several key intersections in Daytona and on nearby highways, such as I-95, I-4 and U.S. 92.
Bikers can check the free Florida 511 mobile app, available on Google Play or the Apple App Store, to find out if congestion or traffic incidents will delay their commute. The app can also be used to select an alternate route.
Riders can register on the website or mobile app for a free My Florida 511 personalized services account to create door-to-door routes to Daytona Beach and other favorite destinations. Each route includes travel time estimates, traffic incident information and the ability to set up custom email or text alerts.
Additional ways to receive traffic information from the Florida 511 system include calling 511 toll-free from any phone in the state and following one or more of the statewide, regional or roadway-specific Twitter feeds (#FL511), such as @FL511_Central, @FL511_I95 and @FL_511_I4.
FDOT encourages all drivers to check Florida 511 to travel safely and experience fewer delays. Check Florida 511 before leaving or have a passenger check during your commute to avoid using a phone while driving.
