State Urges Motorists to Avoid Unnecessary Travel, Make Way for Plow Trucks and Crews
Indianapolis (Jan. 2, 2013) – As recent weather continues to affect Hoosiers statewide, Governor Mike Pence issued the following statement. “Winter storms like this one make travel a challenge for all our citizens. Hoosier motorists may be assured that the State of Indiana will continue to monitor the road conditions and weather and will respond with all available resources. As winter weather continues throughout much of the state, we also encourage drivers in affected areas to stay safe by avoiding unnecessary travel and making way for plow trucks and crews on the roads.” Road conditions are accessible at http://indot.carsprogram.org/main.jsf. Since winter storms hit Indiana late Wednesday into Thursday morning, the Indiana Department of Transportation has deployed more than 740 trucks and crews and will continue to work to clear state roads as inclement weather continues.
