[INDOT] March Madness Brings Snow to Indiana

Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – A winter storm is expected to drop significant snow accumulation across the state beginning Sunday morning. The National Weather Service has declared winter storm warnings or watches for most of Indiana with the heaviest snowfall predicted across Central Indiana.

INDOT continues to monitor multiple developing forecasts, as well as its statewide network of road and bridge pavement sensors, to deploy the needed personnel, equipment and materials ahead of the predicted accumulation. INDOT’s top seasonal priority is to plow and treat its more than 30,000 lane miles of interstates, U.S. highways and state routes.

Motorists are advised to take extra caution as weather conditions could make for difficult driving. Allow extra time to reach your destinations safely and adjust driving according to the conditions. Slow down, maintain a safe distance from other vehicles, brake early and accelerate slowly.

As the storm moves across the state, motorists may find themselves sharing the roadway with INDOT plows. 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.

Motorists are encouraged to keep an eye on evolving weather forecasts and know the conditions before leaving. 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.
