Winter Is Not Finished, but INDOT Is Ready

Crews monitoring the weather ahead of predicted winter storm

 

SEYMOUR, Ind. – A winter storm is expected to drop a variety of precipitation types across the state later today into Wednesday. The National Weather Service has declared a Winter Weather Advisory for central and southern Indiana.  

 

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will continue to monitor developing forecasts, as well as its statewide network of road and bridge pavement sensors, to deploy the needed personnel, equipment and materials ahead of any predicted accumulation. INDOT’s top winter priority is to plow and treat its more than 30,000 lane miles of interstates, U.S. highways and state routes.

 

As the storm moves across the state, motorists may find themselves sharing the roadway with INDOT plows, especially during the evening commute. INDOT asks drivers to give snow plows room to operate. Don’t tailgate or try to pass as the roadway will be clearer behind the snow plow than in front of it. Drivers are reminded to accelerate gradually, drive slowly, brake early and allow greater distance between the car in front of you.

 

Motorists are encouraged to keep an eye on evolving weather forecasts. Plan ahead by visiting www.trafficwise.in.gov or by dialing toll-free 1-800-261-ROAD (7623) for updated Indiana travel information, including road conditions, road closures, construction information and other traffic alerts.
