MODOT works to secure slippery roadways

With the latest winter weather system heavily impacting our roadways, The Missouri Department of Transportation crews are back to fighting snow.

With parts of Northeast Missouri under a winter weather advisory for most of Saturday and getting anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of snow over the last 24 hours, crews have been plowing and treating roads non-stop.

As always, MODOT urges drivers to plan ahead and check road conditions before traveling.

MODOT also reminds drivers that light precipitation can cause roads to become slick with ice or snow. While they are working to clear the roadways, it is important to allow extra time for travel.
