Do not trust!
An hour ago, a semi crashed over the I90/94 bridge at Mirror Lake by WI Dells and both EB and WB traffic is at a standstill while rescue personnel converge to help recover the occupants. I went to the app to see how things looked and the map indicated clear roads, no incidents, no backups, and normal speeds all the way through the dells on the interstate. Knowing this didn’t seem right, I checked the map using a browser and it correctly showed all red and black with detours and warnings and everything you would expect for a major incident on the highway. So, do not trust this app. If you or your loved ones are using it, I suggest you do what I did...delete it.
Entirely useless, don’t bother
This is embarrassingly bad. Even when the information loads, it’s incomplete. Massive gaps, totally unusable. I do a lot of winter travelling and have similar apps for 5 other states which work very well. Wisconsin’s is by far the worst. Poor layout, keeps showing me how to set the app up with alerts which don’t work, and has an absurd popup to not use it when driving every time you open it which opens multiple times on my phone within the same session. Not worth the space on my phone.
Much easier than website
During the winter I use the Winter Road Conditions map all the time. It’s much easier to view in the app than on the mobile website. A couple of things that would make it better would be for it to auto update the map like the website does. I’d also prefer the map settings to not default to the traffic map, which is pretty useless.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
