(Jan. 20, 2016) – As snow falls around Indiana Wednesday, more than a dozen counties have travel advisories.
The yellow advisories are the lowest level of local traffic alerts. They mean drivers could encounter problems on the roads that could restrict routine travel. Drivers are urged to use extra caution when an advisory is in place.
Six of the central nine Indiana counties have advisories so far Wednesday: Boone Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson and Shelby. In the southern part of the state, Dubois and Floyd counties were under orange travel watches. That means only essential travel (work commute, emergency travel, etc.) is recommended.
Here’s a look at some of the major crashes that have the attention of Indiana State Police and INDOT:
- Terre Haute: All lanes of eastbound I-70 at U.S. 41/U.S. 150 closed due to crash with injury
- Huntington County: Crash involving multiple vehicles forces closure of I-69 southbound
