Ontario Updates 511 App - November 20/20

The Ontario government is expanding the 511 app to include new winter driving features that will provide drivers and the trucking industry with additional information to support safer route planning when traveling on provincial highways.

The additional features include:

  • Track My Plow – which will allow drivers to track the location of snowplows and salt trucks on provincial highways in Ontario
  • Information on road conditions – So drivers can see which roads are bare or covered with snow
  • Weather warnings from Environment Canada
  • Up-to-date information on rest areas across the province

 

The app is available for free on the App Store and Google Play.
