Roadway Weather Information Sites in Minnesota

R/WIS is an automated information system that collects, processes and distributes current and forecasted weather and road surface information. Advanced traveler information systems can provide drivers and fleet operators with R/WIS data including up-to-the-minute warnings about changing conditions. This system will allow highway operations managers to use R/WIS for timely and cost-effective snow plowing and deicing.
