Motorists Should Prepare For Slick Roads As Temperatures Drop Quickly

(UNDATED) – Motorists should expect delays and slick driving conditions during today’s commute as temperatures across most of the state plunge from near 60 degrees to the low teens.

Heavy rain this week has left roads extremely wet. As temperatures drop drastically tonight, flash freezing of water on roads and bridges may cause black ice and hazardous driving conditions.
INDOT crews are on standby to treat roads with deicing materials, but drivers have not been able to pretreat most locations due to the heavy rain. Once the rain stops, INDOT yellow trucks will be out in force to treat roads. Give INDOT drivers plenty of room, slow down, and stay behind the trucks.
