South Dakota's Department of Transportation has a new tool for drivers to check the road conditions before they leave home or work.
It's called Clear Path 511. Travelers can now receive text messages with information that may affect their commute, such as about road closures, no-travel advisories, and highway flooding.
The new tool also allows user to sign up for emails about specific sections of highways.
