INDOT: Round the clock plowing 'til roads cleared

Back to Front Page




Winter weather again impacted the morning-rush hour today, and drivers were being urged to travel safely and make room for Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) plow trucks.

Indiana has experienced temperatures well below freezing over the past few days, and those lower temperatures reduce the effectiveness of road salt in melting snow and ice. Drivers are reminded to accelerate gradually, drive slowly, brake early, and allow greater distance behind the car ahead.

INDOT crews were continuing to plow and treat state routes, interstates, and U.S. highways around the clock until all routes are clear.

Drivers are encouraged to allow extra travel time and check road conditions at

or by calling toll-free (800) 261-ROAD (7623). For social media updates during winter weather, visit
