Know Before You Go!
This winter has been a busy season for MDT’s Maintenance crews and Road Reporting staff. MDT is committed to the safety of the traveling public, and would like to offer the following tips for traveling in Montana during the winter months:
Download the MDT Travel Info mobile app to your smart phone or other mobile device. It conveniently offers the same information, updates and features as the interactive Travel Info map on the website by just opening the app! Download it by searching “MDT Travel Info” in the App Store, Amazon or Google Play; or find download links here.
Understand how MDT reports travel conditions. “Are the roads OK?” “Why does MDT close roads?” “What does ‘blowing/drifting’ mean?” Find the answers to these and other questions.
ALWAYS check your route before you travel. You can find current travel conditions and incidents geographically on the MDT Travel Info mobile app or online using the Travel Info Map. You will also find information on current Alerts, Closures and Incidents and a Detailed Report with text descriptions of current MDT highway conditions.
MDT strives to assist the traveling public in an accurate and timely manner. You can quickly and efficiently use our travel resources 24/7, 365 days a year!
IMPORTANT: If you are traveling on a holiday, weekend or outside of business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.); please always use the MDT Travel Info mobile app, MDT’s Travel Info Website, or call 511 for current, updated information. Road Reporting staff and Maintenance crews work outside of business hours to provide information and updates to these resources for the traveling public.
