[ISP] Lowell District Troopers Assist Numerous Motorists
Start Date: 1/6/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 1/6/2014
Entry Description
Lowell, IN-Snow, wind and falling temperatures throughout Sunday into today has hampered commuting for travelers as the Indiana State Police answered numerous calls for service throughout the Lowell District. The Lowell District is comprised of Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Newton, Jasper, Pulaski and Starke Counties.
.
Between midnight Sunday, January 5th, 2014 and this morning the District has handled 220 calls which consisted of assisting motorists, slide-offs, property damage and personal injury crashes.

Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has announced the reopening of I-80/94 (Between Illinois state line and Michigan City) and I-65 (Between Gary and Lafayette). But drivers are advised to use extreme caution, take it slow, and travel at their own risk. Like the majority of roads across the Northwest Indiana District, and the state, conditions are extremely hazardous and non-emergency travel is strongly discouraged. Drivers should expect to encounter slick conditions and blowing and drifting snow both on the main line interstates and ramps

In these subzero temperatures, road salt is not as effective on icy roadways. INDOT is using other methods to melt ice and gain traction on road surfaces, such as chemical anti-icing agents and sand, but the frigid weather is hindering these efforts as well.

FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION FROM THE INDIANA STATE POLICE ON THE WINTER STORM, visit our webpage http://www.in.gov/isp/3096.htm. This page will flow like a blog with up to date current information and will be operation today and Tuesday.

For road condition updates please call 1-800-261-ROAD or visit http://indot.carsprogram.org/main.jsf. Please DO NOT call state, county, local law enforcement or 911 for road and weather.
