PSC study to look at 511 system

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The state Public Service Commission is setting up a task force to study the Division of Highway’s proposal to establish a new 511 traffic information system. But transportation officials don’t believe the study will delay plans to bring the new system online this fall. “We’re still planning on rolling it out this year,” Department of Transportation spokeswoman Carrie Bly said last week. The new system is designed to give travelers access to the large volume of real-time data currently collected by the state. That includes information about accidents, construction, weather and other events that affect traffic across the state.
