511 Apps

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) has launched an enhanced 511 Traveler Information System, providing traffic camera images, travel time estimates and other technological tools to help motorists navigate South Carolina's roadways.

The 511 system provides real-time traffic information on all South Carolina Interstate highways and major highways along the coast. The statewide system provides information on construction projects, lane closures, crashes, congestion and severe weather affecting traffic.

SCDOT's 511 system operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can be accessed by computer, telephone, smartphone or tablet.

Smartphone Application

SCDOT has introduced 511 smartphone applications to meet the growing trend of information on mobile devices. Currently, the applications work on phones and tablets that operate on the iPhone and Android platforms. These applications will notify users of incidents and construction on their predetermined route. You can also see traffic cameras. Do not use these applications while you are driving. Be safe and either pull over or have a passenger access while in a motor vehicle.


The social media site twitter is another way for users of the 511 system to learn of real-time incidents and construction. The Twitter feeds are broken down into four geographic regions of the state: Midlands, Piedmont, Low Country and Pee Dee.
