The Louisiana 511 mobile application provides real-time access to traffic and traveler information from the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development. Maps depict current traffic conditions, as well as incident and construction events that can impact traffic on all Interstate, U.S., and state routes. Traffic speeds, weather alerts and roadside cameras are among the features available. Users can also use the app to set priority routes and receive alerts should information become available on that route.

The Update Is Terrible
First the old version didn’t update to this app. I down loaded an update and suddenly everything on the app stopped showing updates for traffic. Then after a week of no contact with the site according to the app, I go to Louisiana DOTD webpage, which is working fine. I start checking traffic on the webpage, figure an update will come out to fix the bugs on the app any day. No. I finally noticed while playing around on their webpage that the app icon looks different. Curious. I click on the link to get the app. It takes me to at App Store to a different app than I have, the new app being this one. Ok, I think problem fixed, but why didn’t they in someway let people know they needed to download a new app. Why didn’t the other app update. I have both apps of Louisiana 511 on my phone now, but the other one doesn’t show traffic or anything. That stuff was all just aggravating, but I could get past it.
The kicker is all the stuff this app lacks that the old one had. The Louisiana DOTD webpage says this app has the traffic cameras, but it does not. The old one did, and I could get still pictures or live video. The old app also had WAZE reports in addition to DOTD traffic reports. No WAZE reports on this one. Most of the traffic problems aren’t even showing up. There can be a slow down in traffic and congestion at the Mississippi River Bridge as alway, but it shows nothing. I don’t have cameras on here to check so I have to rely on map colors only. That’s the other thing with no green to show things are clear, it is difficult to tell what color things are sometimes. Other times you just don’t know if it’s not getting traffic updates or if things are actually clear. It would be nice to be able to tell the difference between clear/moving traffic area and no data available instead of no traffic data available looking like it’s clear.
This upgrade is horrible. The map is of no use. You cannot tell if the traffic is good or not because the map road color is yellow and it only shows orange or red for traffic issues. No green for good. You can’t tell the difference between yellow and orange. Also the way the arrow moves as it follows you is terrible. It doesn’t stay centered. Also there is no plus/minus to make the screen bigger or smaller easily. I use to rely on this app daily, now it is no help to me. I will have to find something else. I really hope some major changes are made. It is nice to have the drive mode if that’s what you are looking for, but if you want to see the traffic flow before you get out on the road, you will have to try another app.
The app is very useful because I can see the traffic cameras and has alerts on the map but when I open the app it shows the New York 511 instead of Louisiana 511 but other than that it is great
