The Virginia Department of Transportation has upgraded its real-time traffic information system to help Virginia motorists plan their best routes for travel.

Now motorists can download to their iPhone or Android a free mobile app that features real-time traffic cameras, travel times, electronic message signs and traffic maps.

As part of new Virginia 511 system, the state agency also improved its website and upgraded the 511 phone service with a better voice recognition system.

The agency is trying to break even on the project by selling sponsorships on 511 signs.
