The 511 system benefits the entire state by bringing real-time, route-specific travel conditions to anybody dialing 511 or with internet access. The information available also includes emergency alerts such as AMBER Alerts or hazardous travel conditions such as those resulting from winter weather. Initial system development occurred in earnest in 2007-2008, leading to a fully operational 511 system for Wisconsin. It is available by dialing 5-1-1 (always a free call, or 866-511-WISC) or visiting www.511wi.gov. More detailed construction project information is available at projects.511wi.gov, also developed and hosted by the TOPS Lab.
