Motorists traveling to Super Bowl game can check road conditions
Motorists traveling to and from Pennsylvania for the Super Bowl game and events can check road conditions on more than 2,900 miles of Pennsylvania state roads by calling 511 or visiting www.511pa.com, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, average traffic speeds on urban interstates and access to more than 600 traffic cameras.
The 511 site also provides easy-to-use, color-coded winter road conditions for all interstates and other routes covered in the 511 reporting network. Regional Twitter alerts are also available on the 511PA website.
They can also find travel information at www.nynjsuperbowl.com/getting-to-the-game. NJ Transit will be operating multiple trains from Secaucus Junction to MetLife Stadium.
Motorists are advised to be aware of potentially heavy traffic through New Jersey today through Sunday.
Also, the New Jersey State Police have set up a special website at www.nj.gov/superbowl/. It has traffic and transit information for the game, including the interactive 511NJ traffic map and links to all the agencies involved in getting to the game and back.
PennDOT urges motorists to never drink and drive and to always wear a seat belt.
Motorists should also drive according to traffic and weather conditions, and pack an emergency kit for their vehicles. A basic kit should include nonperishable food, water, blanket, small shovel and warm clothes.
When preparing an emergency kit, motorists should take into account special needs of passengers such as baby food, pet supplies or medications and pack accordingly.
