Highway Condition Reporting System
Reporting at the state level is normally accomplished through the Highway Condition Reporting System (HCR). The district HCR coordinator (or designee) should enter weather conditions in HCR and update conditions every four hours during snow and ice storms.

Maintenance sections should also add roadway conditions to HCR and update every four hours -- or as conditions change -- during snow and ice storms.
The roadway condition information provided by the maintenance section is directly relayed to the traveling public from HCR through the department’s Internet site and the statewide toll free number for highway conditions. Because this information is not edited prior to being released to the public, it is extremely important that the information be accurate and current.
