For several years, Porter County Government has provided Winter Weather Road Conditions Updates whenever the Porter County Highway Department deploys trucks, no matter the time of day or night.
The updates include current road conditions during snow and ice event and the steps that the Porter County Highway is taking to address the conditions. The updates are provided every three or four hours as long as the snow or ice event continues.
PLEASE NOTE: These road condition reports only apply to the roads maintained by the Porter County Highway Department. Porter County Highway Department is responsible for streets and roads in UNINCORPORATED Porter County. Unincorporated means outside the municipal boundaries of our cities and towns. State Roads and US Highways are also excluded as they are maintained by the Indiana Department of Transportation.
Up until now, these updates have been posted on Facebook only. That has changed. Porter County Government has expanded the reach of these important public safety updates to include any citizen that wants to sign up to receive them via email and/or text message.
This will enable anybody with an email address or smart phone to know the status of the road conditions during winter weather events.
