MoDOT has been working around the clock clearing local highways. I-44 is now clear all the way to Springfield. I-49 south of Joplin is mostly clear and I-49 north of I-44 is still partly covered. MoDOT's Dave Mitchell tells News Talk KZRG even if the road looks clear, you still need to watch for the slick spots.
"There's still some slick spots out there. Be particularly aware as you're heading on and off ramps and in center turn lanes."
As for the additional snowfall predicted later this week, Mitchell says they may need to treat the roads again, they'll just have to keep an eye on the conditions.
