Road Conditions Improving, but Expect Slick/Slushy Spots

NORTHWEST INDIANA –Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) crews have been spreading salt, chemical de-icers, and abrasives to attack the hard-pack snow and ice that remains on the roads across Northwest Indiana, left behind by the severe winter weather. In addition, crews are using plows and heavy duty equipment to break the melting hard-pack apart. But INDOT wants to stress, road conditions may get worse before they get better.
As the de-icing agents melt through the thick hard-pack, it will become slushy, causing difficult driving conditions. In addition, falling temperatures and snow flurries across the Northwest Indiana District could create slick conditions once again overnight and tomorrow morning.
INDOT continues to urge drivers to slow down considerably on the roads as we work to clear pavement. Motorists should expect fair-to-difficult driving conditions on the roadways across Northwest Indiana for the next several days, and should adjust their driving habits accordingly.
Drivers are reminded, our area was hit by heavy snow, strong winds, and historically low temperatures over the course of four days. It will take more than one day to recover, and bring road conditions back to normal.
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.
