(Harrisburg) -- The Little League World Series kicks off Thursday in Williamsport.

Before teams and fans hit the road to get ot he event, PennDOT hopes they will check out a new tool that aims to cut down on traffic.

PennDOT's 511PA website and smartphone app now have a special feature detailing primary routes, alternate routes and real-time traffic data for the Little League World Series.

"In addition to the real time information, the 511PA site shows historic information for the past three years," says PennDOT spokeswoman Erin Waters-Trasatt, "So you can see typical traffic volumes where you might even be able to plan when the best time is to leave."

Waters-Trasatt says the tools will alert travelers to delays and incidents on the roads to hopefully minimize frustration.
