INDOT prepared for winter weather, impacts to evening commutes possible


The Indiana Department of Transportation is prepared for a quick burst of snow expected to move across much of Indiana starting late Friday morning and afternoon through the evening hours.

The National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories for most counties from the Lafayette area to the Ohio River. NWS is calling for a range of 1 to 4 inches of snow across the state with locally higher amounts possible. Heavier snow is expected along and south of the Interstate 70 corridor.

INDOT will be at a full or partial callout in most areas with more than 500 trucks treating state highways, interstates and U.S. routes by Friday evening. Crews will remain active for the duration of the snow event and afterward to continue cleanup efforts.

Snow is expected to begin late Friday morning or early afternoon, depending on location, and continue through the evening hours. Warm pavement temperatures may limit roadway impacts to start, but heavy snowfall rates and colder temperatures may result in snow-covered roads, causing difficult travel.

Motorists should closely monitor forecasts and consider travel carefully. Remember to slow down, increase following distance, allow extra time to reach destinations and give plow trucks plenty of room to work.

Check real-time travel conditions and view traffic and snowplow cameras online at or via INDOT’s TrafficWise app. Regular updates also will be shared on INDOT’s social media channels. Check for travel advisories in your area at
