Virginia Agency Offers Tools for Planning Holiday Travel

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- The Virginia Department of Transportation is offering tools to help motorist plan holiday travel.
    
The department says its 511 system provides real-time information about traffic, road conditions and incidents. The system can be accessed online at 511Virginia.org or by dialing 511 from any phone in Virginia. Motorists also can download a free 511 app.
    
Most highway work zones will be suspended during the Christmas and New Year's holidays to limit congestion.
    
VDOT commissioner Charlie Kirkpatrick says in a news release that motorists should plan ahead because the Christmas and New Year's holidays are busy times for travel.
