INDOT reports that as of 2:45pm this afternoon they have made progress plowing snow covered roads in northwest Indiana but extremely hazardous icy conditions remain and conditions may worsen overnight. Many of the roads that had narrowed traffic to one-lane by heavy snow are now cleared to two lanes, and the majority of roads are passable. In light of that though, INDOT is asking the public to refrain from any non-emergency travel through tomorrow and if you must venture out then please drive slowly and leave plenty of room between vehicles and give INDOT plows plenty of room to work.
Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via the District’s social media channels: www.Facebook.com/INDOTNorthwest or Twitter @INDOTNorthwest. Or visit http://www.trafficwise.in.gov for INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service.
