Indiana Road Conditions
December 13, 2010 by USA Post
High winds blow snow on the roads already cleared giving limited visibility.
The Department of Transportation, Indiana (the Ministry of Transport) has more than 900 yellow plow trucks clearing and salting all state roads, highways and U.S. highways.
Authorities say the winds causing snow drifts of up to six feet high in northwestern Indiana stranded some people in their cars.
Officials in the counties of Laporte and Porter issued emergency orders that drivers stay off the roads that the region had a foot or more snow and lake-effect winds up to 30 mph.
Deputy Sheriff Andy Hynek said LaPorte County high drifts closed all roads east-west and nearly 100 abandoned vehicles were reported.
Hynek said that some people were trapped in their vehicles for 12 hours.
Road conditions are reported by the teams that Department of Transportation and National Weather Service alerts are available online at TrafficWise.IN.gov or by calling 1-800-261-ROAD (7623).
