[INDOT] Snowstorm to Drop Up to 3” Before Morning Rush

Entry Description
Snowstorm to Drop Up to 3” Before Morning Rush
INDOT to Deploy Yellow Plow Trucks before Storm Hits


INDIANAPOLIS – Weather forecasts are predicting a snowstorm will drop up to 3 inches in the hours prior to the Tuesday morning rush, making road conditions challenging for commuters. The heaviest snow totals are predicted for far northwest and southeast Indiana.


The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will continue to monitor evolving weather forecasts and deploy its yellow plow trucks onto state highways before the storm moves through regions of our state. Each INDOT plow route takes 2 to 3 hours to complete with salt assisting in melting between passes. Motorists should expect snow to accumulate on the roads and driving conditions to be the most challenging during the storm in the early morning hours.


Drivers play a role in keeping the highways open and safe for other travelers by reducing their speeds according to conditions. Make room for our yellow plow trucks so they may clear the roads and routes are not delayed.


Following the storm, strong winds will bring blowing snow and colder temperatures. Local INDOT plow crews will manage the interstates, U.S. highways and state routes to prevent snow from blowing across the highway and sticking. With falling temperatures, salt and other melting agents will have work harder to lower the temperatures at which the accumulation melts.


Know before you go by visiting http://indot.carsprogram.org or dialing 800-261-ROAD for updated road conditions and closures. Regional updates on Facebook and Twitter may be found at www.in.gov/indot/3074.htm.  />
