With major inclement weather incoming, it’s important to be prepared if heading out on the road. Bob Lynch from MoDot says if you can, stay home, but if you absolutely need to go out, bring a few items to keep you safe.

Lynch also said to utilize MoDot’s travel information map, and plan your trip accordingly. Lynch also says although they are short-staffed across the state, Modot will be working hard to keep the roadways clear, although it might take longer.

You can find the Modot travel information map at modot.org.
