Road Conditions Could Be Slick

Streets and highways may be snow covered and slippery today, so if you are planning to travel, in town or out of town, make sure you take your time and give plenty of room between your vehicle and any others on the road.

In Chillicothe, the street crews were out early clearing the emergency snow routes and the downtown area.  They will be out clearing streets in Chillicothe throughout the weekend.

The very cold temperatures could cause some of the chemicals put on the road to melt the snow and ice to NOT be as effective.  That means you are likely to find areas that are slick and you will need more stopping distance.

MoDOT is reporting most roads in Livingston County, as well as roads in the northern part of the state are snow and or ice covered.

Roads in Carroll and Chariton counties are reported partly covered.
