MoDot Advises Limited Travel This Weekend

The Missouri Department of Transportation is advising motorists to limit travel beginning Friday and throughout the weekend as a series of winter storms will impact roads across the state.

MoDOT’s first priority is to return interstates and major roads to mostly clear driving conditions as soon as possible after a storm.

The department also gives plowing priority to roads with higher traffic volumes.

MoDOT says all the remaining less-traveled roads will be plowed to allow for two-way traffic, concentrating on hills, curves and intersections, and they will likely remain somewhat snow covered until higher-volume roads are mostly clear.

After a storm ends, crews continue to work on roads on a 24-hour response until the objectives are met.
