INDIANAPOLIS – Road conditions deteriorated quickly Monday as light snow and sleet fell in central Indiana.

A Winter Weather Advisory remained in effect for much of the viewing area until 12 p.m.; the advisory was extended for some counties until 2 p.m. Temperatures are expected to drop throughout the day. The National Weather Service warned of slick travel conditions, especially on “untreated side roads, bridges and overpasses.”

Five Indiana counties—Clay, Hancock, Kosciusko, Monroe and Sullivan—updated their travel status Monday to a yellow travel advisory to reflect the changing conditions. More than 20 counties had some level of travel advisory on Monday, according to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security’s county travel status map.

The information is provided by each county’s emergency management agency. Some counties, including Hamilton, allowed their travel advisories to expire.

Several crashes were reported throughout the morning. Here’s a look at a few:

  • Indianapolis: I-465 northbound between Exit 16A – US 136; Crawfordsville Rd and I-74 (MM 15.9, Speedway)
  • Indianapolis: I-69 southbound: Crash between 82nd St and Binford Blvd (MM 200.2)
  • Carmel: Ramp from Main St. to southbound Keystone Ave. is closed due to a crash
  • Fishers: 141st Street and Howe Road; Fishers police said a driver was involved in a single-vehicle crash and went to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries
  • Putnam County: All lanes of U.S. 231 NB near Kersey Rd. Are closed due to a crash. This is one mile north of Greencastle
  • Hamilton County: 146th and US 31; the ramp for I-69 to E 116th St; and Keystone Ramp S at E Main St.

“Mixed precipitation is ongoing throughout central Indiana,” tweeted the National Weather Service earlier Monday. “Along and north of I-70, precipitation has transitioned to mostly snow, with a sleet/freezing drizzle mix to the south. If traveling this morning, take it slow and prepare extra time to get to your destination.”

Local police are asking drivers to take extra precautions.

Sgt. John Perrine with Indiana State Police said troopers in the Indianapolis District were responding to multiple crashes.

“The roads are slick and hazardous, please give yourself extra time this morning and slow down,” Perrine tweeted Monday morning.

In an additional tweet, Perrine said to “give yourself enough time this morning to scrape ALL the windows… don’t forget to clear off your headlights and taillights too.”

The Noblesville Fire Department echoed those sentiments in a tweet, advising drivers of slick spots on the roads and urging people to reduce their speeds and leave extra space between vehicles.

“Several crashes are coming in from across the county,” Hamilton County Emergency Management tweeted. “If headed out, please slow down, allow extra space and do not use cruise control.”

INDOT Northeast said it was dealing with several slick spots.

“We have a couple dozen dozens out patrolling and treated roads as needed,” the agency tweeted.

INDOT East Central tweeted that the agency was still seeing signs of snow in Marion County.

“We have our Yellow Trucks patrolling the roadways to treat slick spots as needed,” INDOT said.
