As road conditions are continually changing across South Louisiana due to flood waters, Troopers urge citizens and travelers to utilize the Louisiana Traveler Information System through several different methods including the 511 phone system, www.511la.org, Louisiana 511 app, LA DOTD Twitter accounts, and the “Way to Geaux” smartphone application. Depending on the method utilized, the traveler information system allows access to valuable resources such as current road reports on closures, detours, flooded routes, real-time traffic camera views, and traffic congestion.
For smartphone users, the Louisiana 511 app is a particularly useful tool to stay informed on road conditions in your area.
