Snow/sleet predicted for this weekend; let's be safer than last time

The weather forecast is calling for a rain, sleet and snow this weekend, which could make road conditions quite treacherous.  It's best to avoid traveling in icy conditions if you can. However, if you must travel, you'll want to call 511 or visit KanDrive to get the latest information about road conditions.

Our social media accounts are another great resource.  You can follow the KDOT headquarters twitter account, @KDOTHQ to track statewide issues or you can follow the account(s) in your region of the state.  Click here to view all KDOT related accounts.

During the last winter storm in Kansas, 12 snowplows were struck by vehicles.   The video below has interviews with the snowplow drivers that were hit.  Let's not have that happen again. Please be safe on the roads this weekend.
