The winter of 2011 is only a few weeks old and, so far, the near arctic conditions have been brutal for travelers. Thus, providing long-distance motorists with up-to-date weather and road condition information not only helps savvy drivers prepare for a trip, it helps keep the economy moving, which is why the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHA) National Traffic and Road Closure Information website is so vital.
The website provides several options that help drivers narrow down the weather conditions information they need by providing links to local and national Internet weather services including AccuWeather, Intrellicast Highway Conditions, the National Weather Service, Safe Travel USA and Travel Cities Weather.
For city and highway traffic conditions, the website provides links to AccuTraffic, Beat the Traffic, Iteris Real-Time Traffic, MSN Traffic Reports, Smart-Traveler Information, the Total Traffic Network, Traffic.com, Traffic Land.com and TravelForecast.com.
For providing drivers with the latest road conditions and weather information that could keep them safe, the FHA’s National Traffic and Road Closure Information website is Government Video’s Website of the Week.
