511NJ Twitter Service
The New Jersey Department of Transportation's (NJDOT) 511NJ Travel Information service is now using Twitter!
The 511NJ Twitter accounts are one-way automated information feeds from the NJDOT’s 511NJ service.They are provided as a convenience and are not intended to receive feedback,comments, or report events.
New Jersey’s 511 Twitter service automatically distributes information via quick, frequent messages or “tweets” about traffic incidents, congestion and construction on the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway, Atlantic City Expressway, all interstates, certain highways throughout the state as well as bridge and tunnel crossings.
In addition, these feeds are not monitored regularly and will only be reviewed from time to time.
“Tweets” are short, 140 character messages that can be viewed online or sent to a mobile device (as an e-mail or a text message, but not both). Subscribing to New Jersey’s 511 tweets is free; however, normal cellphone text rates do apply.
Some tweets may exceed the 140 character limit. In this case, more information is available about these specific incidents on the 511NJ website or by calling 511.
Lastly, please be aware that New Jersey law states that using a hand-held communications device while driving a vehicle is a primary offense. The New Jersey Department of Transportation strongly recommends that motorists pull over while driving, or, ask a passenger to retrieve the messages.
The following interstates and routes are available online using Twitter:
