UNDATED (WHTC) -- Before you head out on the road, the Michigan Department of Transportation wants you to know the road conditions in your area. You can find state highway and freeway conditions by visiting http://michigan.gov/roadconditions. Up-to-date information on road closings, traffic incidents, traffic speeds and traffic camera views can be found at http://michigan.gov/drive MDOT representatives say that extreme cold limits the effect of salt and could cause road conditions to worsen. Drivers are also cautioned to never pass a snowplow on the right as many snowplows now have a blade on the right to clear the shoulder. MDOT reminds drivers to drive like they want to make it home.
