winter travel information

The Iowa Department of Transportation’s goal during the winter season is to return roads to reasonably near normal winter driving conditions as quickly as possible after a winter storm. The department operates around the clock to clear roads of snow and ice. Your responsibility is:

  • Ensure vehicles are in good operating condition for winter driving.
  • Take time to find out about the weather and road conditions.
  • Use good driving skills to avoid losing control of your vehicle.
  • Operate safely around snow removal equipment.
