MoDOT Warns of Slick Spots as Cold Temps Linger

MoDOT says secondary routes and rural roads are especially at risk for patches of ice as temperatures and blowing snow make it difficult to treat some areas.
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) MoDOT Crews have been working around the clock to treat roadways, but they warn drivers to watch out for slick spots.

MoDOT says secondary routes and rural roads are especially at risk for patches of ice as the temperatures make it difficult to treat some areas.

"This isn't a typical storm, where we can make great headway once it stops snowing," said District Engineer Don Wichern. "In some areas of the state where they received more snow, even though it's been almost two days since the snow stopped, motorists will still find major routes still packed because of the winds and cold temps."

MoDOT also urges drivers to keep an emergency kit on hand in case you become stranded on the highway.
