SC (WMBF) - The South Carolina Department of Transportation is prepared for Winter weather conditions.

To ensure safety on SC roads and bridges, SCDOT crews remain on standby and will continue pre-treating operations Monday morning. Crews also anticipate switching to response mode on Monday afternoon.

SCDOT urges safety when traveling near heavy equipment vehicles conducting weather related operations. Below are ways to stay informed on the latest road conditions:

On the Web:

· Visit SCDOT's website: www.scdot.org. Under quick links, click on SC Road Conditions and then “Winter Weather.” This page is activated at times when snow and ice conditions may affect South Carolina highways. The reports are updated around the clock by SCDOT personnel. Conditions are listed for freeways and state primary highways, which are first to be cleared during inclement winter weather.

· Visit www.511sc.org for SCDOT's Traveler Information System, which provides traffic streaming, travel time estimates, traffic speeds and other technological tools to help motorists navigate South Carolina's roadways. The 511 system provides real-time traffic information on all South Carolina Interstate highways and major highways along the coast. The statewide system provides information on construction projects, lane closures, crashes, congestion and severe weather affecting traffic.

By Smartphone:

· SCDOT is has a free 511 application, “SCDOT 511” for smartphones and tablets. Links to download the applications are on the 511 website under “Extras” and “511 Tools.” Do not use these applications while you are driving. Be safe and either pull over or have a passenger access while in a motor vehicle.
