MO (KAIT) - The Missouri Department of Transportation has issued 'no travel' advisory for Southeast Missouri.

December 25, 2012 – For immediate release

JEFFERSON CITY – Due to predicted hazardous blizzard conditions in Southeast Missouri during the evening and overnight hours on December 25, the Missouri Department of Transportation advises motorists to avoid travel in that area of the state. The advisory remains in effect until conditions improve and maintenance crews are able to treat and plow southeast Missouri roadways.

"The storm will most likely affect the southeast corner of Missouri and we anticipate sustained strong winds and heavy snowfall," said Beth Wright, state maintenance engineer. "This storm could create whiteout conditions, which will make travel hazardous and clearing roads extremely difficult."

Motorists should be advised that travel during this type of storm is very dangerous. Should you attempt to travel, bring your mobile phone and winter survival supplies. If you do become stranded, stay with your vehicle and call 911. Be aware that emergency responders may have difficulty reaching you.

Stay informed about Missouri road conditions by using MoDOT's Traveler Information Map, at www.modot.org. The map offers current views of road conditions for Missouri interstates and highways. Conditions for these routes are color-coded to give users the information they need at a glance.

You can zoom in to a particular location, check live weather radar and view images from MoDOT's traffic cameras and message boards.

For smartphone and tablet users, the recently-upgraded Traveler Information App brings the same information to mobile devices. Users can even create a "My Routes" text report that allows them to make a custom list of the routes they travel most. The app is available for free from the iPhone and Android app stores by searching for "MoDOT."

MoDOT also provides road conditions information through our Customer Service Center. Dial 888-ASK-MODOT (888-275-6636) to speak to one of our expert customer service representatives. They are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
