The newest round of winter weather is moving through the Lake Area. Precipitation has begun in the form of some rain, sleet, snow and freezing rain. It should end before the afternoon hours but not before, perhaps, causing a few travel problems during the morning hours.
Travelers are encouraged to consult MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map at modot.org before heading out the door. The map provides road conditions across the state and real-time traffic flow and traffic cameras on interstates.
Motorists should keep in mind that bridges and overpasses generally experience freezing conditions first. MoDOT encourages drivers to remember the following tips when driving in inclement weather:
- Slow down and give yourself plenty of braking distance.
- Steer and brake gently.
- Accelerate slowly at intersections.
- Allow plenty of space between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you.
- Stay back 100 feet behind snow plows that may be spreading salt. Do not pass snow plows even when on a multi-lane road.
MoDOT also has a toll-free customer service line which is answered 24-hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. A customer service representative can be reached by calling 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).
