Iowa DOT issues Friday morning travel update

News, Weather

December 21st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Department of Transportation reported today (Friday) at 8-a.m.,  that travel conditions are slowly beginning to improve in the state. However, many roads remain completely or partially covered with snow and ice pack. Interstate 35 from Ames to Mason City, both north- and southbound, has been reopened.

Travelers are advised to check Iowa’s 511 travel information system before making their trip by calling 800-288-1047 nationwide or 511 within Iowa, or visiting http://www.511ia.org. Several additional options for mobile access, text and email, or information through Twitter or Facebook are described on this website. In  western and southwest Iowa, roads are still reported to be mostly covered with snow primarily north of Highway 34, while roads primarily south of Highway 34 were partially covered with snow.

Primary travel concerns this morning are focused in eastern Iowa.  Considerable blowing and drifting snow will continue to make travel hazardous in that part of the State until mid morning. Northwest winds in eastern Iowa, will be sustained at 20 to 30 mph, with some gusts near 40 mph. Visibility to one mile or less can be expected in open, rural areas.

Iowa DOT crews are out this morning trying to restore travel to normal winter driving conditions and open blocked roads as quickly as possible. Conditions should continue to improve throughout the day.
