Illinois State Police: Emergency travel only

TERRE HAUTE — Illinois State Police District 10 officials are advising the roadways in District 10 continue to be emergency travel only. Counties include Champaign, Douglas, Coles, Vermilion, Edgar, Moultrie, Piatt, Shelby and Macon.

Officials advise Interstates 57, 72 and 74 are extremely dangerous with snow-packed drifts and icy patches. Motorists should use caution, reduce speed and allow for extra travel time. Many state routes, U.S. routes, county highways and township roads are impassable and/or are closed due to drifting snow and abandoned vehicles blocking the roadway. 

Officials say travel conditions are life-threatening, and anyone traveling on the roadways is in danger. If motorists have vehicle problems, a disabled vehicle and/or crash, assistance may not arrive before they succumb to extreme cold. Temperatures and wind chills can quickly cause hypothermia and death. Stranded motorists are encouraged to remain inside their vehicles. 

A complete list of road closures can be found on the Illinois Department of Transportation website www.illinoisroads.info and www.gettingaroundillinois.com  or 1-800-452-4368.
