INDOT is urging drivers to slow down and increase the distance between other vehicles as a number of spin outs have been reported across the Region this morning including a recent accident westbound I-80/94 at the Illinois state line. The crash has closed the left lane.
Heavy snow fall moving through Northwest Indiana is limited visibilities and decreasing travel speeds as a result traffic volume is building with INDOT inbedded speed sensors indicating average speeds of between 35 and 40 mph.
INDOT suggests drivers to refrain from non-essential driving until conditions improve.
A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. CST today (Sat. 2/1/14) for Lake, Porter and La Porte Counties with a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for the remaining counties in the Radio One Communications listening area.
