Saint Paul —Minnesota motorists now have an exciting new way to stay connected to all things related to Mn/DOT—thanks to Twitter.

Mn/DOT’s Twitter site, www.twitter.com/mndottraffic, links directly from www.511mn.org, the recently updated traveler information site and will provide “tweets” about roadwork and lane closures, open houses, Web site links to important projects and initiatives and even real-time traffic updates for motorists in the Twin Cities metro area.

“Twitter is another tool for motorists to receive the latest Mn/DOT updates and news in real time,” said Todd Kramascz, 511 project manager.

Planned future enhancements will allow motorists to get information customized for their preferred routes.
