Where can I call for road conditions?

DO NOT CALL 9-1-1 TO ASK FOR ROAD CONDITIONS!

Road conditions and weather information are available through the following outlets:

  • For more information on winter storm preparedness, please contact the Champaign County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) at 217/384-3826.
  • What should I do if I accidentally dial 9-1-1? Simply stay on the phone and explain to the 9-1-1 Operator that you dialed in error. If you hang up, the 9-1-1 Operator may have to dispatch police officers to your location. Staying on the line to let us know that your call was accidental will save time and keep the police officers available for emergencies.
