Motorists can expect more than 2 million travelers on Florida roadways during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, with the majority of travelers planning to leave Wednesday and return Sunday, according to AAA. Travelers can use the Florida Department of Transportation's 511 Traveler Information System to stay up-to-date on crashes, congestion and construction on all of Florida's interstates and toll roads.
Travelers can call 511 toll free, visit FL511.com, download the 511 app on iTunes or follow 511 on Twitter. For custom alerts, travelers can register for My Florida 511 personalized services on FL511.com. Users can register their route online to hear information on that route first when calling 511. Travelers also can register to receive traffic alerts via phone call, text message or email.
Nationwide, AAA forecasts 39.1 million Americans will travel by automobile during Thanksgiving, accounting for approximately 90 percent of all holiday travelers.
