Northeast Missouri Drivers Should Expect Slick Roads Overnight

HANNIBAL - Depending on how the winter weather system continues to move through northeast Missouri, many counties in that part of the state are expected to receive winter weather, including freezing rain, ice, sleet and snow.  There is a winter weather advisory that has been posted for much of the state.

Missouri Department of Transportation crews in several counties will be out overnight monitor road conditions and treat them as needed.  Assistant Maintenance and Traffic Engineer Brian Untiedt encourages drivers to slow down and be prepared for road condition to change quickly.  "Through the day today, the road pavement temperature has been warm enough to keep roads wet, but as the air temperature drops this evening, the road temperatures will drop causing it to be slick," Untiedt explained.  Untiedt went on to say bridges and overpasses will become slick first.  "Drivers need to take cause, because roads that appear wet could be slick," he added.

Updated road conditions can be found on the MoDOT map at www.modot.org.  Smartphone users can download the map app on that same site.

Please slow down, wear your seat belt and remove distractions, especially by not using your cell phone while driving.
