forecast to be lighter with less fresh snow to potentially blow
around. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for these areas
Thursday, where blowing snow may lead to limited visibility and
hazardous travel conditions.

Wisconsin Department of Transportation  logo   WisDOT urges extra caution on all roadways today

As snow continues to fall across most of Wisconsin, with total accumulations predicted between 5 to 10 inches and dangerous winds and temperatures to follow, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation urges motorists to take extra precautions if travel is necessary.

WisDOT’s 511wi.gov winter road condition map is showing most roads are snow covered and slippery ice-covered highways in northern Wisconsin. Hazardous conditions will continue and will impact the evening commute.

Preparation before winter travel:
 

  •     Know the current road conditions, check 511wi.gov for the latest updates
  •     Clear snow and ice from vehicles prior to traveling
  •     Ensure full tank of gas and windshield washer fluid
  •     Inform others about your route and expected travel time


Precautions while driving:
 

  •     Drive for road conditions, slow down; posted speed limits are for ideal conditions
  •     Increase following distance, leaving plenty of room for stoppin
  •     Headlights on
  •     Buckle up
  •     Pay attention and limit distractions
  •     Leave room for maintenance vehicles and plows, move over or slow down for stopped emergency vehicles
  •     Be cautious on bridges, overpasses and entrance and exit ramps as they ice sooner than roadways
  •     If you are in a crash, or in a run-off-the-road incident: stay in your vehicle; activate your vehicle’s hazard lights; and call 911


Caution around snowplows

WisDOT reminds motorists that it is illegal to follow a snowplow closer than 200 feet if the plow is engaged in snow and ice removal on highways with a posted speed limit of more than 35 mph. Most crashes involving snowplows and vehicles happen when a snowplow is rear ended or hit while being passed.

Motorists may legally pass a working snowplow but are advised to use extreme caution as road conditions could be worse ahead of the plow.

Dangerously cold air to impact road conditions

Snowplows were out working through the night and will continue through the day (1/23) to remove snow from roadways and provide ice control. Strong, gusty northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph, with gusts to 35 mph are forecasted for Thursday (1/24). Wind chills of -20 to -40 degrees are expected over the next few days. Extensive blowing and drifting of new snow across open and unsheltered areas will add additional travel hazards.

Wisconsin State Patrol responded to the following between 11 a.m. on 1/22 and 7 a.m. on 1/23:
 

  •     96 – Motorist Assists
  •     50 – Vehicle Runoffs
  •     35 – Property Damage Crashes
  •     3 – Personal Injury Crashes
  •     13 – Unknown Injury Crashes
  •     3 – Hit and Run

Illinois Tollway logo   Illinois Tollway Prepared for Changing Winter Conditions and Rush Hour Travel

Drivers urged to reduce speed, be alert for plows and emergency vehicles

The Illinois Tollway has mobilized its full fleet of 196 snowplows in response to freezing rain and snow that is expected to slow rush hour travel as it continues falling overnight and into Wednesday, creating slippery pavement conditions in some areas that could affect drivers during their Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning commutes. The Tollway’s Snow Operation Center will remain open through the storm to manage the agency’s systemwide response.

 “Our trucks are salting the pavement to prevent ice from forming but conditions may vary as the storm moves through the area, so we ask drivers to please slow down and be alert,” said Illinois Tollway Executive Director Liz Gorman. “We are reminding everyone to allow extra time to complete their trips and give snowplows and emergency vehicles the extra room they need to safely do their work.”

 Drivers can receive real-time information on pavement conditions and roadway incidents by signing up for Tollway Trip Tweets at twitter.com from the Tollway’s website at illinoistollway.com.

 The roadway reports will be updated by the Tollway frequently during the storm as pavement conditions change to better assist customers in planning their trips. Tweeters can follow all five Tollway Trips or just the roadways that interest them.

 The five are: @94_294_Tollway, @I_90_Tollway@I_88_Tollway@I_355_Tollway and @IL_390_Tollway.

 To respond to this weather event, the Illinois Tollway has a full complement of more than 200 staff and supervisors working per shift to ensure that roadways are kept clear of snow and ice. 

 During heavy snowfall, snowplows often work in tandem to remove as much ice, slush and snow as possible from all lanes at once. When it is safe to pass, the plows spread out and allow traffic to flow around them. 

 The Tollway and other Illinois transportation and safety agencies also have launched the Give Them Distance campaign to remind drivers to slow down and change lanes safely when they see any stopped vehicle with flashing emergency or hazard lights. Drivers can visit www.GiveThemDistance.com for more information on this safe-driving initiative.

 Tollway Travel Tips

The Tollway offers the following tips for winter weather events:

·        Slow down and leave enough time to reach your destination.

·        Do not make sudden lane changes and always use your turn signal.

·        Don't follow too closely and increase your intervals between vehicles.

·        Reduce speed in cash lanes at toll plazas.

·        Remember to always wear your safety belt and ensure children under the age of 8 are securely restrained in child safety seats.

·        Drop It and Drive. Don't text or use a hand-held cellphone while driving. Both are illegal.

·        Need Help? Dial *999.  If your vehicle becomes disabled, park safely on the shoulder, raise your hood and remain in your vehicle.  Dial *999 and assistance will be dispatched to your location.

·        More information about safe winter driving is available at illinoistollway.com

   Illinois - Special Weather Statement

Counties: Alexander; Edwards; Franklin; Gallatin; Hamilton; Hardin; Jackson; Jefferson; Johnson; Massac; Perry; Pope; Pulaski; Saline; Union; Wabash; Wayne; White; Williamson

...Black Ice still a concern for the Quad State region late this
afternoon and tonight...
As the rain moves east across the Quad State region early this
afternoon, some very light snow flurries or brief sleet and
freezing drizzle may occur over extreme southeast Illinois,
southwest Indiana and parts of west Kentucky, generally east of
the Land between the Lakes.
Any light wintry mix should last less than two hours at any one
location. Little, if any accumulation is expected at all.
Temperatures will still be at or above freezing by the time most
of the measurable rainfall moves out of the area. This rain will
also keep road surfaces above freezing for several hours.
The gusty winds will help to dry off most of the road surfaces
this afternoon, but some locations may still remain wet closer to
sunset.
If you are planning travel along and west of Interstate 57 in
Illinois and Interstate 55 in southeast Missouri between 4 pm and
7 pm today, some road surfaces that still have water on them may
develop a layer of black ice.
If you are planning travel east of Interstate 57 and Interstate 24
in southern Illinois and west Kentucky, black ice may develop
between 7 pm and 11 pm on roads that remain west.
For those in traveling in southwest Indiana and the Pennyrile
region of west Kentucky, black ice could develop as early as 11 pm
tonight.
As temperatures dip down into the 20s overnight, any roads still
wet will likely develop a layer of black ice. Please use caution
while driving for your morning commute on Thursday and allow
extra time to reach your destination.

   Illinois - Hydrologic Outlook

Counties: Boone; Cook; De Kalb; DuPage; Grundy; Kane; Kankakee; Kendall; La Salle; Lake; Lee; Livingston; McHenry; Ogle; Will; Winnebago

...Risk for river ice and ice jams increasing next several days...
Favorable conditions for river ice formation and possible ice jams
developing for the following rivers and their tributaries...
Rock, Fox, DuPage, Des Plaines, Iroquois, and Kankakee in
northern Illinois, and Iroquois, and Kankakee in northwest
Indiana.
...through at least early next week.
Due to recent cold weather and additional very cold temperatures
expected over the next several days, conditions are favorable for
river ice formation. River ice has caused at least one ice jam
in northern Illinois over the last few days. Rapid development of
river ice may lead to additional ice jams, causing rises on area
rivers with little warning.
This outlook means that elevated river conditions and potential
impacts are possible, but not yet certain. Those with interests
along area rivers should closely monitor future river forecasts.
