PennDOT’s New 511PA Mobile Application
New 511PA Mobile Application Puts Traveler Information in Drivers’ Hands
Harrisburg – People traveling through Pennsylvania can now get better traffic information before and during a trip with PennDOT’s new, free 511PA mobile application.
The application, available for iPhone and Android devices, provides hands-free and eyes-free travel alerts for the nearly 40,000 miles of road that PennDOT maintains, the Pennsylvania Turnpike and select New Jersey and West Virginia roadways. Users can also check the application before they travel to view traffic speeds, cameras and travel alerts.
“Our mission is to provide better mobility in Pennsylvania, and that includes making sure that our customers are well informed for their travel plans,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “This application helps our customers have the most current travel information available before and during their trip.”
Application users can tailor the alerts based on event type, time between alerts, their location (with a radius of up to 500 miles), and for which direction of travel the user wants to hear advisories. When activated, the hands-free and eyes-free application plays audio alerts with traffic incidents or slowdowns within the radius the user selects.
Mandatory Recycling is Coming to New London Township
In accordance with the 2010 census, New London Township's population now exceeds the minimum thresholds contained in the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act (Act 101), passed by the General Assembly in 1988, and is obligated by law to implement a recycling program for its residents. An ordinance is being prepared at this time and will be in effect by March, 2013. More information will be added periodically as the process moves along.
