MoDOT officials issue 'No Travel Advisory' for our region


As drivers prepare to head back to work Monday...MoDOT officials are urging drivers to slow down.

MoDOT has issued a "no travel advisory" for the duration of this storm, which is expected to continue through the night and into Monday. The snowfall, coupled with 30 mph- 45 mph wind gusts can create drifts that will seriously challenge vehicles using four-wheel drive.

Drivers  are urged to not go on out roadways unless it is necessary.

MoDOT officials say it's critical for drivers to be careful, because even though the snow may have stopped, the roads can still be treacherous for travel.

"The challenge will be as the temperatures drop, tonight to zero and below, that the treatment we put out there is very ineffective when it gets that cold. And so what you see later in the afternoon will be likely the condition of the roadways in the morning." says MoDOT Asst. District Engineer, Dan Salisbury.
