RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Department of Transportation is offering tools to help motorist plan holiday travel.

The department says its 511 system provides real-time information about traffic, road conditions and incidents. The system can be accessed online at 511Virginia.org or by dialing 511 from any phone in Virginia. Motorists also can download a free 511 app.
