    The Virginia Department of Transportation is offering tools to help drivers plan their holiday travel.

    The department says its 511 system provides real-time information about traffic, road conditions and incidents. The system can be accessed online at 511Virginia.org or by dialing 511 from any phone in Virginia. Motorists also can download a free 511 app.

    Most highway work zones will be suspended during the Christmas and New Year's holidays to limit congestion.

    VDOT commissioner Charlie Kirkpatrick says in a news release that drivers should plan ahead because the Christmas and New Year's holidays are busy times for travel.
