03122019CW0200MARYVILLE – With winter weather fast approaching, State Senators Christopher Belt (D-Centreville) and Rachelle Crowe (D-Glen Carbon) recommend bookmarking the Illinois Department of Transportation’s GettingAroundIllinois.com website for continually updated information on road conditions. 

“We all know how dangerous roads can become in the wintertime,” Belt said. “During snowy or icy conditions, Getting Around Illinois is a great tool for determining whether your trip out is safe.”

GettingAroundIllinois.com can be accessed using a computer or a smartphone. Road conditions are recorded by plow drivers out in the field and relayed to GettingAroundIllinois.com through a cloud-based system to provide a general overview on IDOT-maintained highways. The site includes the ability to identify and zoom in to a location, travel route or destination on a state map.

“While the CDC recommends limiting travel because of COVID-19 right now, there are still times when you may need to leave the house,” Crowe said. “If you do need to travel, Getting Around Illinois can help you choose the best route to get to your destination.”

The website also provides information on road construction, average daily traffic and trucking routes. Residents can visit and bookmark GettingAroundIllinois.com for the most up-to-date road conditions throughout Illinois.
