MoDOT works hard to clear roads after a snowfall to make them safe for motorists. Clearing roads also involves cleaning up intersections, interchange ramps and median crossovers. Motorists should give snowplows plenty of room to work, remember not to tailgate and try not to pass.
With a major winter storm leaving heavy amounts of snow across the Tri-States, Trooper Mike Kindhart of the Illinois State Police took a moment to provide an update on driving conditions around the area.
There is a semi jackknifed in front of O'Reilly's Auto Parts on US 61 southbound in Hannibal. Traffic is backed up on McMasters through town. Please find an alternate route. For updated information, call 1-888-275-6636.
The area's first real taste of weather has arrived. Temperatures started out mild, but have fallen below freezing, and a mix of rain and snow has become all snow. 2 - 4 inches of accumulation is predicted for the Quincy/Hannibal area.
