Icy roads may threaten Monday commute

Posted

JEFFERSON CITY – A complex weather system is expected to spread snow and ice across much of Missouri beginning Sunday morning and continuing into Monday. The Missouri Department of Transportation is recommending that people delay their Monday morning commute as the system has the potential to produce ice accumulations ranging from 0.1 to 0.5 inches in some areas. Freezing rain and ice are predicted to move into the northwest portion of Missouri in the early morning hours and move across the state creating the potential for a dangerous morning rush hour.

Snow is expected to move into the state early Sunday morning and is likely to continue throughout the day. Snow accumulations ranging from 1 to 5 inches are possible in the north and central parts of the state.

MoDOT workers are treating roads and bridges in advance of the storm and drivers are urged to keep informed of the rapidly changing forecast. If you must travel, please allow extra time to reach your destination. Remember that even a trace of freezing precipitation can cause slippery roads. To check road conditions please go to MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map at traveler.modot.org. The map is also available as a free app for Apple and Android devices.

MoDOT also provides road condition information through its Customer Service Center. Dial 888-ASK-MODOT (888-275-6636) to speak with a customer service representative 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
