Winter Road Condition Contact Information

January 9, 2014
Emmetsburg News

As winter weather conditions fluctuate from day to day, motorists should consider the advantages of knowing the road conditions ahead of time. Stay tuned to your local forecasts, and keep road condition contact information handy.

For several years the Iowa State Patrol has compiled road condition contact information for surrounding states. Information sharing has evolved over those years; from phone numbers to 511 and from websites to social media. Technology has made this information much easier to access.

Added to the list is the information connecting you to road condition social media. Many states have added free apps running on Apple and Android platforms. These apps are free to download at their respective websites. Several states also give you the ability to receive updates on Facebook and Twitter.

Always remember that a safe trip starts with the best information on current road conditions.
