    Best sites to check road conditions?

    My bf will be going from Louisville, KY to Cincinnati to Ft Wayne, IN on Monday. I know the weather conditions are gonna be bad from now til after Tues. Where is the best place to find out the road conditions before he ends up in a bad situation?

    Most states have Road Conditions on a webpage.
    Some have Phone Apps now too even.

    I go NOAA unofficial weather app for general current conditions. Also, buy him a weather band radio of some form.

    Some of the Truck AM/FM Radios have the Weather Band Built in also.
    Some CBs also...

    Some of the state sites have traffic cams in them too if he has a laptop he can check real-time conditions along route before he goes. Really helped running jersey into conneticut during this last few days snow event up there. I checked with dispatch for driver reports of conditions and they said a lot of our company guys sat and waited it out but student and I were running and he got valuable winter experience because we were looking at actual conditions not just the standard canned weather radio reports or tv coverage

    Have him call each destination and make sure that they are going to be open, some companies in this area have already said that they are closing, some Monday and some Monday and Tuesday.
