MODOT Issues ‘No Travel’ Advisory
Another major winter storm is making its way into the area, and with it, heavy snow and strong winds. Due to expected hazardous conditions, the Missouri Department of Transportation has issued a “no travel advisory”. This storm will affect western, northern and central portions of the state. The highest accumulations are expected north of Highway 54, including I-70 from Kansas City to Kingdom City, I-35 and I-29. Camden, Miller and Morgan counties could see anywhere from five to 13 inches of snow. The high rate of snowfall, coupled with 30 mile per hour winds, can create drifts that will seriously challenge even four-wheel drive vehicles. Stay informed about Missouri road conditions by using MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map, available online at www.modot.org, or through MoDOT’s new smartphone app, available for iPhone and Android phones.
