Members News

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced updates to the 511PA traveler information service including new features and real-time travel and alternate-route information for fans headed to the Little League World Series (LLWS).

The new and enhanced features provide timely information and also support efforts to combat human trafficking.

PennDOT helps minimize congestion for LLWS travelers

Motorists traveling to the LLWS in Williamsport are encouraged to plan their trip using the real-time travel and alternate-route information available online at

The website is dedicated to monitoring traffic conditions on the primary travel routes to the event. Travel times and alerts are provided for: Route 15 south to Route 220 to Market Street (from north); Route 15 north (from south); Interstate 80 east to Route 220 north to Market Street (from west); and I-80 west to Route 15 north (from east).

The page includes the average travel time for the primary route as well as one or two alternate routes. Users can see incidents, construction, weather forecasts and alerts, traffic cameras, and traffic speeds on the map.

PennDOT’s Central Region Traffic Management Center (CRTMC) is also supporting the Little League World Series by posting real-time travel information on dynamic message signs and transmitting audio messages on highway advisory radio systems to assist travelers.

Additional PennDOT bridge information for commercial drivers

Commercial vehicle drivers can benefit from an enhancement tailored to their needs. The 511PA traffic map now includes a “PennDOT Bridges” feature which shows locations for all state-owned bridges posted with weight or other limits, along with closed bridges. This expands on the existing feature of locations for all bridges under legal height (<13’6”) over state roads, which was previously added in December 2021. This information can be viewed on the web map and is also available as an alert that can be heard in drive mode on the mobile app.

Combatting human trafficking

In partnership with the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, PennDOT updated the 511PA Travel Links page to include new information for reporting concerns about human trafficking. Travelers can report suspected human trafficking via the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) tipline at 888-292-1919 or 511PA also includes more information with recommendations from PSP on how to recognize and report suspected human trafficking. The 511PA mobile app and phone service have also been updated to provide travelers easy access for reporting suspected human trafficking activity.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
