Drivers are strongly encouraged to not put themselves or first responders in harm’s way during these times by avoiding optional travel and heeding county TRAVEL ADVISORIES.
Motorists who must venture out play an important role in keeping the highways open and safe for other travelers by reducing their speeds according to conditions.
Accelerate gradually, drive slowly, brake early and allow greater distance between the car in front of you. Allow room for INDOT’s yellow plow trucks so they may safely clear their routes without delay.
The Indiana State Police and other law enforcement agencies encourage the public to keep emergency phone lines open and to access updated ROAD CONDITIONS AND CLOSURES or by dialing toll-free 800-261-ROAD (7623) or 5-1-1 on your mobile phone.
Road conditions reported as difficult (violet) are covered in snow and ice, fair (blue) have isolated snow and ice or wheel tracks, and good (gray) are generally clear.
INDOT’s Southwest Indiana district will also be posting regular social media updates during the storm at www.Facebook.com/VincennesDistrict and www.Twitter.com/INDOTSouthwest.
