MoDOT on the lookout for winter weather tonight

Posted on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 at 4:02 pm

Drivers should use caution as Missouri may see wintery precipitation Tuesday night through Thursday morning.  The National Weather Service forecast calls for winter precipitation along and north of Interstate 70, including Kansas City.

It’s expected that pavement temperatures will keep roadways wet or slushy, but there is a chance for freezing on bridges and overpasses. MoDOT crews will be on the watch for frost and will treat bridges if freezing occurs.

Here are some safety tips:

  • Please wear your seat belt and don’t drive distracted. Buckle Up Phone Down.
  • Don’t pass a snow plow and stay back six car lengths.
  • If you encounter car troubles or are involved in a crash, please remain in your vehicle.

To check road conditions please go to MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map at http://traveler.modot.org/map/. The map is also available as a free app for Apple and Android devices.
