MoDOT issues state-wide travel advisory

   JEFFERSON CITY, MO – With weekend snow and freezing rain covering the most of the state, Missouri travelers are advised to use caution if they must travel Sunday evening and Monday morning.
   Snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected to continue statewide, affecting road conditions overnight. Extreme cold temperatures and high wind continues to be a concern, causing blowing and drifting snow.
   "MoDOT crews will work throughout the night to keep roads plowed and treated," said Beth Wright, MoDOT state maintenance engineer. "We encourage people to stay tuned to local weather forecasts, check road conditions on MoDOT's traveler map, and avoid travel if possible."
   Heavier snow is in the forecast for northern and central Missouri with accumulations expected to reach from 3 to 6 inches, and a possibility of 1 to 3 inches in the southern counties of the state. Precipitation is expected to continue through Monday morning.
   If you must travel, take your mobile phone and winter survival supplies. If you become stranded, stay with your vehicle and call 911. Be aware that emergency responders may have difficulty reaching you. 
   Remember the following winter driving tips:
 
   ·       Wear your seat belt.
   ·       Slow down, and adjust your speed to the conditions.
   ·       Give snow plows plenty of room.
   ·       Keep your windshield and windows clear to help you see.
   ·       Be alert and remember that road conditions can change very quickly.
   ·       Allow extra travel time to get to your destination.
 
   Stay informed about Missouri road conditions by using MoDOT's Traveler Information Map, available online at www.modot.org or through the smartphone app. The map offers current views of road conditions for Missouri interstates and highways. You can zoom in to a particular location, check live weather radar and view images from MoDOT's traffic cameras and message boards.
   MoDOT also provides road conditions information through the Customer Service Center. Dial 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636) to speak to a customer service representative. They are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

   Freezing rain is taking it's toll on area roadways.  Icy conditions caused dozens of crashes Monday morning.
   Icy conditions are blamed for four accidents in a five-mile stretch of Interstate 55 before 7:00 a.m.  Police say two people were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries after a three-car crash at I-55 and Lindbergh.  Police also say a car slid on the ice and struck an emergency vehicle working that accident.  
   Police say most of the accidents were caused by drivers going too fast for the slick road conditions.
   MoDOT District Engineer Becky Allmeroth says crews began pretreating area roads at midnight. Allmeroth says if motorists in these areas can delay travel until late morning it will help.  
   MoDOT crews are using a combination of salt brine, rock salt and beet juice to improve areas roadways during this storm.
   With warmer weather on the horizon, St. Louis City Streets Director Todd Waelterman says crews will have to be ready to switch gears, literally overnight.  Waeltermann tells Fox 2 News that today's winter weather will quickly be replaced by Pothole season. 
   "You know the roads have opened up considerably, and with the warmer weather, you're going to see a lot of movement of this pavement," Waelterman said.  "So it is going to be pothole week."

   Regional planners are looking for a more efficient way to get riders to work and back.  

   The St. Louis Rapid Transit Connector Study is an examination of bus-based rapid transit services in the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County. The project will analyze four possible corridors and pick the two most likely to meet the study's goals, then advance for federal funding.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Metro Transit, the East-West Gateway Coordinating Council and the Missouri Department of Transportation are behind the push.  

   Public meetings will be held in September 2013 to gather public input on two final, recommended projects to be advanced into competition for Federal funding.  The same meeting will be repeated at three locations along the proposed routes.
