You probably know there's a website where you can get Minnesota road conditions. (HEREbut now there's an app that kicks all manner of butt! It's called MN511.

Download this app ASAP because it is the most useful "should I do the drive?" app I've ever come across. You can check the website, but you can't pull over and safely check the website on your phone. You have to do it all before you go. With this app the info is in your car with you. Get it before the snow flies!

And it really has the info you need. Check out a couple screen captures, you'll see what I mean. From construction getting in your way, to emergency situations, and, of course, roads having trouble because of weather...it's all here. Notice they even include images from the cams!
