Update: Travel advisory for Edgar, other Illinois counties

Motorists urged to avoid travel if possible

Pesotum, Ill. —Illinois State Police District 10 officials are urging motorists to use extreme caution while traveling today as the sleet, freezing rain, and windy conditions are making travel dangerous this afternoon.

Since 6:30 this morning, Troopers have handled 111 slide offs and 10 crashes (8 property damage, 2 minor personal injury). Additionally, two semitractors jackknifed on Interstate 57 (northbound lane) at mile post 238, partially blocking the northbound lanes.

Visibility is now low in some areas due to fog forming due to the high humidity levels and cold temperatures. Visibility will become even worse when night falls.

All roadways in District 10 are ice covered and treacherous. Travel is not advised  unless absolutely necessary due to an emergency. District 10 also covers the counties of Champaign, Douglas, Coles, Vermilion, Moultrie, Piatt, Shelby and Macon.

Motorists are reminded to use extreme caution when approaching stationary authorized emergency vehicles with their lights activated on the roadways. Authorized emergency vehicles include police, fire, EMS, and other emergency vehicles. It is the law to proceed with due caution, change lanes if possible, and reduce your speed. Move over and slow down. Also use caution when traveling near snow removal trucks and snow plows.

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.

Additional information will be provided as updates are given.
