State soon to have 511 number for road conditions, weather, snow
River Falls Wisconsin 2815 Prairie Drive / P.O. Box 25 54022

There's 911, 211 and 411, and soon, there will be 511.

Wisconsin's Military Affairs Department says the new 511 number will give you information on severe weather, road closings, snow conditions and alternative directions.

It's expected to go online in November.

Transportation and emergency management officials are putting the finishing touches on the new 511 service.

Thirty-four states already have it and they've taken just under 100-million calls.
