"As the snow continues to fall in southeastern and south central Indiana, the roadways are beginning to become slick and hazardous," Sgt. Noel Houze said. "Motorists are urged to use caution and avoid unnecessary travel."
Residents are asked to avoid calling state, county or local law enforcement dispatch centers for travel conditions. For the latest information regarding road conditions in your area, visit the Indiana Department of Transportation website "Traffic Wise" at www.TrafficWise.in.gov.
