Wis. DOT encouraging drivers to ‘know before you go’

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Wisconsin Department of Transportation officials are encouraging drivers to “know before you go” on winter roads.

You can check road conditions on 511.wi.gov.

The site covers major highways, showing locations of crashes, traffic backups and road closures.

There’s a winter road condition tool that shows which highways may be slick.

The site also has traffic cameras all over Wisconsin, so you can see conditions before you drive.
