Country Roads Still A bit Slippery

If your Monday morning commute takes you on the country roads, keep in mind some are still a bit slippery after this weekend’s snow fall.  -Dustin Weber

REMINDER: Today is my last day doing traffic.

It’s a super-sad day for me,  I am totally bummed….I love my job and the people I get to interact with everyday.   At the same time,  I’m excited for new adventures.  I start a new job working near Capitol Square on Monday, Nov 17.

There will be various people filling this role for the next few weeks and traffic issues will still be updated on Twitter @madisontraffic.  I have no reason to take my Twitter account with me,  so I’m leaving it with my replacement(s).  :-)

Hopefully in the next few weeks,  a permanent replacement will be hired.   Please be patient with this process.


REMINDER: For up-to-the-minute live traffic updates, @madisontraffic on Twitter.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Changes. Trust me, this wasn’t an easy decision.

I have accepted a job with the State of Wisconsin working downtown near the Capitol Square.

Believe me when I say this was not an easy decision to make.   It is what is best for me and my family.   While I am excited for new adventures,  I am sad and will miss everyone I interact with on a  regular basis doing traffic reports, including people I’ve never met on Twitter.

My last day doing traffic will be on November 14.    I start my new job November 17.

A search is underway for my replacement.  This Twitter account will remain active with whoever takes over my job.   Please be patient during this transition.
