Resources For Winter Driving


Washington has been experiencing record snowfall. In Spokane, for example, December finished with 61.5 inches of snow, far eclipsing the previous one-month record of 56.9 inches set in January 1950.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer recently provided links to various travel resources helpful to those driving in the snow, including traffic camera links provided by the State Department of Transportation; a website maintained by Seattle with traffic updates; a statewide road temperature map; and state traffic alerts.

Readers commenting on the story also provided links to a moderated Department of Transportation Twitter site featuring people texting or emailing immediate information about current road conditions and incidents, and Seattle road cams and Bellevue road cams.
