INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) – Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has directed the Indiana Department of Transportation to ready itself for a full callout across most of the state as dangerous winter weather approaches.
“As severe winter weather continues, INDOT remains fully prepared to keep the interstates, U.S. highways and state routes open and as safe as possible for emergency responders,” said Pence. “We encourage Hoosiers to follow county travel advisories and not to put themselves or their local emergency responders in harm’s way.”
INDOT said they will deploy more than 800 plow trucks alternating 12-hour shifts on state highways before the storm moves through regions of our state.
Weather forecasts are predicting up to 10 inches of snow in parts of central and northern Indiana beginning Tuesday. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning from 1 p.m. Tuesday until 1 p.m. Wednesday.
