Heavy snowfall predicted; drivers encouraged to call 511 or visit for road conditions

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of the state starting this evening through Wednesday morning.
The heaviest snow fall is expected in north central and north east Kansas with six to 10 inches of snow and ice accumulations predicted.
The warning cautions of heavy and blowing snow, which may make driving conditions hazardous.
We want to encourage travelers to be safe.  The best option is to stay home and avoid driving if you can.  However, if you do have to drive, the best place to find information on road conditions is by calling 511 or by visiting  Below are some of the features of KanDrive.

This is a map of road conditions across Kansas as of 9 a.m. today.  As you can see the roads are mostly clear at this point, however a portion of U.S. 69 in southeast Kansas is partly snow packed (Note: the blue arrow is pointing to this section of roadway.)

In addition to the map, you can also view pictures from the actual roadway.  You also have the option to do a camera tour, which allows you to view all the photos along your route.  Here are some of the photos along I-70 as of 9 a.m. today.
