Kentucky First to Implement 511

Posted on June 18, 2001

Last week, the northern Kentucky-Cincinnati metropolitan area became the first region in the country to adopt the 511 traveler information telephone number. The national dialing code will provide callers with up-to-the-minute traffic and transportation information. Several more jurisdictions are expected to implement 511 later this year. To facilitate national implementation of the number, the U.S. Department of Transportation is working with a coalition that includes the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, the Intelligent Transportation Society of American and the American Public Transportation Association. Implementation of the 511 number is eligible for regular federal-aid highway funding. The DOT established a grant program to assist transportation agencies in planning and converting to 511.
