      With the snowfall expected across the Heartland, a winter weather advisory has been issued for the Kirksville area.

      With the snowfall expected across the Heartland, a winter weather advisory has been issued for the Kirksville area.This is our first snowfall of the season and Amy Crawford from Missouri Department of Transportation says they are preparing to treat the roads to ensure your commute is as safe as possible.??We have individuals in our maintenance forces that are getting the trucks ready, getting the spreaders in the trucks and making sure the equipment is prepared and ready to go, so that when it does start to snow and freezing conditions that they can just get in the trucks and get out there.??Crawford says MoDOT workers will be monitoring the storm around the clock tonight.

      They usually start pre-treating the roads, but with this storm bringing rain first, it would wash away the brine.
