Travel Advisory issued in NEMO
In light of dropping temperatures Thursday and continued precipitation expected, the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Northeast District is issuing a travel advisory during the afternoon and evening of Thursday, January 11.
“There is significant concern for black ice on roads and bridges, despite our treatment today and tonight,” explained Jennifer Hinson, district maintenance and traffic engineer.
MoDOT crews will continue to be out in most of northeast Missouri to put down material where it is needed and monitor roads and bridges.
“The pavement could be deceiving, especially this afternoon and evening,” she said.
Realizing many area residents will be commuting home from work Thursday, she suggests planning ahead, taking extra time, driving slowly and cautiously, and always wearing a seat belt.
