Plowing "Slow-Go" As Crews Battle Falling Snow

(UNDATED) - The Indiana Department of Transportation is maintaining mobility this morning--but it's a "Slow-Go".

Plow trucks are methodically pushing snow off southern Indiana highways. All snow routes are being serviced. Because it takes at least two hours to plow a route, snowfall is re-covering lanes before INDOT trucks re-run their routes.

According to one snow-op manager, "It's a dry snow, very drive-able if people take their time.

"We're using plows, not salt, because we want to keep the pavement dry. Wet pavements would cause the snow to stick. Ice would be a problem. Right now, the dry snow is easy to plow. There's just a lot of it."

INDOT will maintain its full call-out of plow truck drivers in southern Indiana until conditions allow curtailed operations. At noon, a full contingency of fresh drivers will replace those who have been on the roads since midnight last night.
