Vigo County travel status upgraded, but still a concern

The travel status for Vigo County has been upgraded to a travel watch, according to a news release issued earlier today by Dorene Hojnicki, Vigo County Emergency Management Agency director.

A travel watch means:

• Conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. During a “watch” local travel advisory, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended, and emergency action plans should be implemented by businesses, schools, government agencies and other organizations.

• Most main roads are passable but snow-packed and slick in spots.

• Some areas are prone to drifting — and re-drifting after plowing due to wind conditions.

• Care should be taken to keep speeds low and drive in control of vehicles.

• Clearing of the roads continues throughout the night and daytime. Motorists are asked to give road crews and emergency vehicles due regard.

• Response to stranded motorists is still limited and may take extended periods of time.

The Vigo County government, Terre Haute city government and Vigo County schools remain closed on Tuesday, Jan. 7.
