How can I find out about current road conditions when I travel?

Most areas have online mapping and weather services. You can check them out before you leave on a trip and plan accordingly. Look for the specific roads you will be taking and map out your whole trip ahead of time. Then check the forecasts for the areas on an online weather service. Some provide forecasts as far as 10 days ahead. If you need information as you are traveling there is a phone number to call for each route. They often change from state to state, so make sure you have them all of you are traveling a long distance. Make sure you pack those access numbers along with your maps so you can get to them anytime on your trip. Take a cell phone with you if you have one. There are areas where cell phones don’t always work though. Be aware that they are not always updated as often as the weather changes. If you are on a long trip, check the road numbers frequently as you travel along, especially in areas known for bad weather or dangerous road conditions. They can shut a road at any time if weather is really bad. If you are traveling in the rainy or wintery seasons, be prepared in case you get stranded somewhere along the way. Bring emergency supplies with you when you travel. If you are really concerned stop at a gas station along the way that service the big rigs. They are a good source of information for road conditions. They travel them constantly and may be able to give you some tips too. Have a safe trip! Mama Nono
