Winter Weather Awareness

November 4-8 was Winter Awareness Week in Wisconsin but it seems like Winter decided to come early and stay! You can check travel conditions for most major roadways in the state by using 511 Wisconsin, which is updated with the latest traffic and road conditions. This information, along with live traffic cameras and traffic alerts, can be accessed through the free 511 Wisconsin mobile app, @511WI on Twitter, or the mobile-friendly site www.511wi.gov. Find more tips on getting ready for winter at http://www.readywisconsin.wi.gov.
