How crappy is I-94 from Minneapolis, MN to Madison, WI going to be tomorrow morning?

I have to travel to Madison, Wisconsin for work tomorrow. (on I-94/I-90)

Anyone live near I94 in Wisconsin between Madison and MN? Have you been out on the freeway today? This site says its ice covered but I am just curious if there is any anecdotal mefite on the street info I can garner.

My fond hope is that it will be all super salty and dry for my trip tomorrow. :p

Best answer: Shouldn't be too bad. My roommate just got from Madison to Mpls on a bus. Said it was a bit slower than usual, but not too bad. A bit slippery, but shouldn't be unreasonable. Good luck!

Best answer: It will most likely be treated (salty), but there will be wet and snow covered spots, I can pretty much guarantee that. With the good amount of snow we got plus the high winds, you can pretty much be assured there will be some drifting across the Interstate. The flow of traffic should be pretty much normal come Monday morning, so I wouldn't think that there's going to be anything to worry about.

Best answer: I live less than a mile from I-94 in WI between Madison and MSP and we got about 2 feet of snow. But the road is fine. I drove on it this morning. The plows in WI are seriously aggressive and they were out there all night salting and clearing. The road was mildly wet today but there was a normal amount of traffic and I suspect that by tomorrow, it will be mostly if not totally dry. Drive safe.

Best answer: We drove from Fargo to Minneapolis today, and the roads were fine. I think you'll be ok.

Response by poster: Thanks guys. The trip down was smooth. There were oodles of semi's left in the ditch from the storm though!
