Entry Description

INDOT Covering All Routes On 12 Hour Shifts

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) snow plow truck drivers are fighting what is expected to be a long battle with today’s snow storm.

 

Weather and roadway conditions are quickly changing as the storm continues to move north of the I-70 corridor. Many roadways are covering with snow as snowfall rates increase and strong winds and gusts blow accumulation. Heavy snow and high winds are expected to continue through the day, which increases the potential for slick conditions and reduced visibility.

 

INDOT’s Indianapolis Subdistrict has 68 trucks plowing and treating interstates, U.S. highways and state routes in the metropolitan area.  Tipton, Greenfield, Cambridge City and Albany Subdistricts each have deployed between 25 and 30 trucks. Collectively, about 180 truck drivers across in East Central Indiana will be working alternating 12-hour shifts to keep state highways as safe as possible through the winter storm.

 

Drivers are encouraged to avoid driving unnecessarily, especially over the next few hours during the peak of heavy snowfall and strong winds. Drivers should know the conditions before leaving and plan extra time to drive appropriately for weather and road conditions.

 

INDOT traffic and roadway condition information is available at www.TrafficWise.IN.gov or by calling 800-261-ROAD (7623). A map with updated county travel advisories, watches and warnings is available on the Indiana Department of Homeland Security website at www.GetPrepared.IN.gov.
