The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has asked us to remind you that the latest updates on real-time traffic and road conditions are available by using the 511 Traveler Information System simply by dialing 511 and saying the route or region about which you are seeking information. Out-of-state travelers can call 1-888-ROAD-511 (1-888-762-3511). Travelers can also access this information by visiting the 511 Traveler Information Web site at www.511la.org.

You can also obtain information regarding road closures by contacting DOTD’s Customer Service Center at 1-877-4LA-DOTD (1-877-452-3683). The center is open 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

And,of course, there's always your radio! You can also listen to 99.9 KTDY online here, or by downloading our RadioPup app for your phone.

 

Additionally, motorists can utilize the new "Way to Geaux" application to receive real-time, around the clock travel alerts. The hands-free, eyes-free smartphone application can be downloaded on any iPhone or Android device by visiting either the iTunes App Store, or Google Play.
