With a winter weather bearing down on much of the U.S., it’s important to know the what road conditions are like along your route. Websites like Safe Travels USA, which taps into each state’s 511 system, and Intellicast are valuable resources.
While many apps and websites will give you screenshots of specific areas along your route, Intellicast allows you to take a look at road conditions along your entire route.
Intellicast is the single-best travel resource for drivers, hands down!
For example, if you’re going to be traveling the I-80 corridor from California to Iowa, visit Intellicast’s Highway Conditions, click on I-80, and you’ll received detailed weather information for all points along your route!
Intellicast also features an interactive map. The interactive map allows you to find current weather conditions, view satellites and much more.
If you want to find out what road conditions look like before you head out, Safe Travel USA is an excellent resource. The site offers a map of the continental U.S., just click on the state or states you plan to pass through and you can see detailed maps with current road conditions. The site also offer information on road construction, as well.
Unlike Intellicast, Safe Travel USA does not allow you to view entire highway systems or more than one state at a time, it’s still very helpful and provides a detailed sate-by-state view of current weather and road conditions.
Both websites are free to use!
