The SDDOT 511 mobile application provides real-time access to traveler information supplied by the South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT). Maps depict current roadway conditions and the latest incident, construction, and restriction information on all Interstate, U.S., and State Routes. Forecasted road condition threats for the upcoming 24 hours are described in the road segment reports, and where there are, such threats may be viewed on the map. The maps also indicate the location of roadside cameras and allow the user to view camera images. As the user moves through the highway network, the app keeps track of the user’s location on the map. SDDOT also maintains a Twitter feed accessible through the 511 mobile application's main menu. Finally, the mobile application links surrounding states' mobile applications and mobile websites.

Ratings and Reviews
I had such high hopes
While the map is similar to the website and the tools are all there, the data is OLD. The cameras show the correct time, but the pictures are from a night time view when it's 2pm. If I can't trust the data, it's useless. It's extremely clumsy on a phone as well. I also have the same complaint about the map: no key to tell you what the various colors are. Worse, if you zoom in to look at an area, it makes it smaller and smaller, not bigger.
Neglected Support and Looks Old
The app still uses the old UI features since iOS 6. The interface is clunky. Moving around the map is a pain. It seems that it’s using some proprietary map app and not Apple Maps. I’m just better off planning ahead and pay attention to the weather. I uninstalled it.
Could be better...
I was so excited to find this app, but I can't find anything to tell me what the various colors mean for the roads. I turned on "show legend" but that didn't seem to work.
