Crews on both sides of the river continue their work to clear the roads.
MoDOT is asking any motorists who hit the roads today, to use extra caution. Conditions have improved most on major highways, but most state routes are still covered or partly covered with snow or ice. MoDOT officials say crews will continue to work on a 24-hour schedule. Drivers are being warned that blowing snow and dropping temperatures will cause conditions to deteriorate this evening.
The lower the temperature drops, the less effective salt becomes. Crews will be adding abrasive materials--such as sand--to the salt, to provide drivers increased traction.
