Planning your trip around Northumberland County now even easier with improved travel information service

Posted on Wednesday May 09, 2018

Ontario 511 is a bilingual, digital information service that is offered to the public via three channels:


1)    Online at

2)    Twitter – main accounts @511Ontario (English) and @Ontario511 (French) plus regional accounts

New features of the more user friendly site include route planning, personalized alerts and the ability to save and check any of the 450 cameras on Ontario highways. The site also features information such as weather, winter road conditions and construction info – all directly provided by your Ministry of Transportation to you.
