[INDOT] Winter Is Not Finished, but INDOT Is Ready

Entry Description
Winter Is Not Finished, but INDOT Is Ready
INDOT is monitoring weather ahead of predicted snow

INDIANAPOLIS – A winter weather advisory has been issued for most of central and southern Indiana and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has readied their fleet and are ready to hit the road!  Current forecasts show another round of snow to arrive sometime during the noon hour today and dropping a possible 1-6 inches of snow across the region.  


In anticipation of the storm INDOT crews pre-treated bridges, interchanges and roadways with salt brine to prevent precipitation from bonding to the road once the snow begins.  


INDOT will continue to monitor developing forecasts, as well as its statewide network of road and bridge pavement sensors, to deploy the needed personnel, equipment and materials ahead of any predicted accumulation. INDOT’s top winter priority is to plow and treat its more than 30,000 lane miles of interstates, U.S. highways and state routes.  Each plow route takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete with salt assisting in melting between passes. 


As the storm moves across the state, motorists may find themselves sharing the roadway with INDOT plows, especially during the evening commute. INDOT asks drivers to give snow plows room to operate. Don’t tailgate or try to pass as the roadway will be clearer behind the snow plow than in front of it. 


Drivers are reminded to accelerate gradually, drive slowly, brake early and allow greater distance between you and the car in front of you.  


INDOT encourages motorists to know road conditions before traveling and visit http://indot.carsprogram.org , dialing 800-261-ROAD or calling 5-1-1 from your cell phone for updated road conditions and closures.
