TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — On Monday, January 21, 2019, the nation will celebrate and remember the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This day is known as Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Day, and is a federal holiday, now recognized in its 34th year.

In honor of MLK Day, there will be events and activities throughout the state.  The Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) Florida 511 (FL511) Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS) is available to motorists as a travel tool to MLK events throughout the state, as well as other destinations all year-round.

FL511 is the state’s official source for traffic and travel information.  It provides current road and travel conditions in Florida, so drivers can make choices about their travel plans.

The service includes a website in English and Spanish, mobile app, Twitter messages, text alerts, and more. FL511 also provides camera views on major Florida roads, so users can see road conditions throughout the state. The goal is to increase driving safety and reduce travel time.

Before heading out, drivers should check the FL511 App or interactive road map on for important traffic information and incident alerts. Once on the road, have a passenger check to avoid using a phone while behind the wheel. Passengers can also view roadway camera snapshots showing current driving conditions on their route.

The FL511 mobile app, available from the Apple App Store or Google Play, features an interactive map showing traffic congestion and incidents and camera snapshots on roads around the user’s location. 

The FL511 App, website, and Twitter feeds provide information on Florida’s interstates, toll roads and other major metropolitan roadways, allowing drivers to avoid unnecessary delays, as well as receive updates on accidents, congestion, construction and more.

Travelers can follow FL511 on 13 Twitter handles, on Facebook @FL511, and Instagram @Florida_511.  For more information, visit the website at
