MoDot Prepares for Winter Weather

The Missouri Department of Transportation are preparing for a mix of sleet, snow and rain tomorrow morning. [Sunday]

Tonight crews will be pre-treating the roads with a combination of beet juice and salt brine to help reduce the effects on Interstate 70.

While temperatures are expected to climb overnight, and reach above freezing temperatures tomorrow, the ground, roads and bridges will remain below freezing, meaning any precipitation will freeze as soon as it hits the ground.

MODOT asks driver allow a wide berth for road crews to complete their work. 100 feet is the ideal length to stay behind their vehicles while spreading material.
