February 21, 2011 by USA Post
Wisconsin Road Conditions, (Press Release) – A mixture of rain this morning with high winds, continue to make travel dangerous in northwestern Wisconsin. As plows continue to clean the roads and the interstate system, motorists are encouraged to drive with extreme caution. Today, tow trucks will also begin to eliminate the many vehicles that are in ditches and medians and I-94. On Sunday, the State Patrol responded to nearly 100 slide-ins and accidents on Highway 29 Hudson in Black River Falls.
Motorists who must travel are advised to monitor weather and road conditions before leaving. To check the latest road conditions in winter, call 511 or view the information on the Web at 511wi.gov. Call 911 only for emergencies.
Channel 5 Millain Wells has been in contact with local police. Green Bay Police said plows were on the road since 11:00 p.m. on Sunday. Many drivers do not respect the rules of emergency and snow has left their car parked on the road. Green Bay Police say these people were ticketed and their vehicles towed.

“511 Wisconsin Travel Information site is currently experiencing unusually high demand. To serve you faster, we provided immediate access to winter driving conditions below.”
The site is declared snow covered and slippery roads in all parts of the state, except the extreme southern counties and southeastern Wisconsin.
Nearly 15 inches of snow have already fallen in parts of northern Wisconsin, with more snow in the forecast starting Monday afternoon.
The next round of snow is expected to be accompanied by gusts of wind, so travel conditions may be hazardous due to limited visibility, according to the Department of Transportation Traffic Operations Center of the State.
Madison Street teams are working on salting the main roads, but no major operation is under tillage Madison gets less than 3 inches of snow – the forecast calls for 3-4 inches starting Monday afternoon.
