Ever since the software update a few months ago the traffic widget has never been the same. I use this widget extensively since I find myself on the highway many days.  They took away the ability to change zip codes right on the same screen (like on the weather widget) and the information that is given appears to be missing major information and appears to start in mid-sentence. Leaving out the name of the roadway.  It renders the traffic widget unuseable.  Most of the time you will see a message that states "exit 53 is closed from 9 PM to 5 AM".  Where/ What highway?  Loved the old way.  It gave you information on every major road encompassing, NYC, Long Island, Rockland and Westchester Counties and New Jersey roads.  Many days there is no data.  Called many times but received no real information on what is happening.  Will it ever go back to the original way?
