With snow forecast for the weekend, consider taking a look at the roads before getting in your car.
The Iowa Department of Transportation has cameras positioned along all of Interstate-235 and much of Interstate-80.
On Friday, the DOT announced even more cameras are up and running. They include 17 cameras along I-35 between Ankeny and Ames and four cameras on Highway 30 between Ames and Nevada.
Next month additional cameras will go active between Ames and Boone.
To view them, got to 515ia.org and click “travelers.” The cameras tab is found in the top left corner.
