Travelers links

While visiting you’ll no doubt want to take a quick tour of these helpful links.

Dial 511 for the latest updated travel information

The NC Dept of Transportation features 511 access to important travel information.

By giving the public access to travel information like construction, incidents, traffic, and transit, the public can make educated decisions about travel times, routes, and modes.

511 is an abbreviated dialing code for travelers to access highway, multi-modal, and other pertinent travel information via landline or wireless phones.

Check for:

  • Traffic incidents and major closures on Interstates, US Routes, and State Routes in NC
  • Weather Conditions Statewide
  • Road Construction and Planned Road Construction on Interstates, US Routes and State Routes in NC
  • Amber Alerts
  • Links to Neighboring States’ 511 Phone Systems

Several North Carolina sister states have or plan to have 511 systems up and running:
