INDOT crews have been applying several solutions to hard-packed snow in an attempt to improve road conditions.
INDOT Spokesman Matt Deitchley said salt, chemical de-icers and abrasives were put down yesterday. In addition, crews are using plows and heavy duty equipment to break the snow apart. Deitchely stresses that road conditions may get worse before they get better.
As the de-icing agents melt through the thick snow, it will become slushy, causing difficult driving conditions.
Drivers should slow down so crews work to clear pavement. Expect fair-to-difficult driving conditions on the roadways across Northwest Indiana for the next several days, and you should adjust your driving habits accordingly.
