Email Alerts From DOT for Alaska Road Conditions

I received 33 emails from Alaska Department of Transportation (DOT) since 6am today and probably will get some more tonight. The email alert shows which road, from what mile, and what kind of road conditions there is. Most of the time it says something like this:

Road Closure, Cloudy, Snow, Visibility reduced, Blowing snow, Drifting snow, Snow on roadway, Travel is not advised, Stay back 200 feet from snowplows, Snow removal equipment on roadway, Slippery road surface, Reduce your speed, Ice on Bridges/Overpasses, Drive with headlights on.

Below is one of so many emails I received from them.

If you live in Fairbanks or surrounding areas, I suggest you subscribe to their email alert. It's really helpful, you just have to keep up on deleting them or you end up with tons of emails from DOT.
