This weekend’s winter storm brought more snow across most of our region, and crews with the Missouri Department of Transportation have been out since the beginning plowing and treating state highways. However, due to extremely low temperatures, blowing snow and possible refreezing, MoDOT urges all motorists to drive with caution if they have to drive Monday morning.
While crews have been working around the clock, the bitterly cold temperatures make it difficult to plow snow or treat roadways with salt and other snow-melting materials. Even in areas where crews have made progress, it’s possible motorists may encounter slick spots where refreeze has occurred or blowing snow has covered an already plowed roadway.
One of the best ways to prepare for winter travel is to check MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map, located at http://www.modot.org/.
