MoDOT urges motorists be safe with expectant weather changes

LEE’S SUMMIT – The forecast for late evening Friday and early Saturday morning may deliver some slick highways for motorist. The Missouri Department of Transportation cautions drivers to slow down, expect bridges, overpasses and hills to be ice-covered and slick.


Any time temperatures approach freezing and precipitation is in the air, ice may form on driving surfaces, particularly on bridges and overpasses where cold air circulates above and below the structure. MoDOT crews are watching the weather closely, and will be out in anticipation.


If you must travel during a weather/snow event, check MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map at modot.org/map for highway conditions across the state. And if traveling within the greater Kansas City area, go to kcscout.net for up-to-the-minute major highway conditions locally. Or call 888-ASK-MODOT (275-6636).



If you plan to travel, make sure your gas tank is full. Carry an emergency kit with blankets, a flashlight, energy bars and water. Allow plenty of time. Always buckle up, everyone, every time. And remember to double the distance you normally would leave behind vehicles in front of you. Be safe.
