One-stop shopping for road conditions
February 5, 2010 7:41 AM   Subscribe

Is there a good one-stop website or iPhone app that covers more-or-less real-time driving conditions across the USA, including weather, road closures, traffic, etc?

Follow-up to this question about planning our cross-country move in early March. It was suggested in that thread that we check each state's Department of Transportation (or equivalent) website for road conditions as we go. That got me wondering, is there any good website or app that aggregates that information so we don't have to do it state-by-state, and includes things like weather forecasts? The best I've found is Weather Underground's Trip Planner, but that only includes current and forecasted weather, which doesn't do us much good if there's already two feet of snow on the ground.

Best answer: I like Waze. It's user-generated so the information may not be entirely accurate, but I've been using it for a few months with no complaints. Used it during the crazy snowstorm we had last week and avoided some particularly icy spots and accidents.

Google Maps has a "Traffic" button now, but I don't know how complete the coverage is. It works great when I visit Los Angeles.
