Equipment malfunction temporarily shuts down Vt. 511

Posted: Updated:

If you went online to check the Vermont road conditions Monday morning you were out of luck.

The state's 511 page went down because of an equipment malfunction. The Transportation Agency says the broken hardware was replaced later in the morning.  The 511 site is now up and running again.

But this site will be replaced.  The agency says a new 511 web site is coming, and it will have a lot more to offer.

"We are working with other states in the region to establish a regional 511 system that's going to be much more robust and it's going to cover a wider area," said Erik Filkorn of the Vt. Transportation Agency.

That new site should be operational in about a year.
