The Iowa DOT’s traditional winter season runs from Oct 15, to April 15. With our hectic pace of life, we always seem to have somewhere we need to go. Since Iowa winters can be harsh and it is sometimes dangerous to travel, making the decision on whether to take the trip comes down to having the right information to make the safest choice for you and your family.
Two of the main resources are http://www.511ia.org and Iowa DOT snowplow map. These two websites work in tandem to offer people information on what’s happening on the roads
