Traveler Information

The Russell County Sheriff’s Office patrols hundreds of miles of county roads along with State and Federal Highways.  With Interstate 70 and Kansas Highways 18, 40, 232 and 281 running through our county we have litterally hundreds even thousands of travelers driving through our county daily.  During severe weather like thunderstorms and winter storms, road conditions are needed to provide drivers with information that will get them were they are going safely.  If you need Road Conditions information then here are some ways to get that. 

Getting the most up-to-date information in Kansas is as easy as calling 5-1-1. By calling "511" on any phone (wireline and wireless) from anywhere in Kansas you can learn about road conditions, construction detours and travel weather information for the Kansas turnpike and any Interstate, US, or state highway in Kansas and Nebraska. You can reach Kansas 511 from anywhere in the U.S. or Puerto Rico by calling 1-866-511-KDOT (5368) or if dialing 511 doesn't work from your phone.
