Road Crews Mobilize For First Winter Storm Of Season

City and state road crews are on the roads preparing for the first winter storm of the season.

Thursday afternoon, the National Weather Service predicted 3 to 6 inches of snow in areas north of Interstate 70 and 6-10 inches south of I-70. Temperatures are expected to dip into the 20s, with windchills in the teens.

The Indianapolis Department of Public Works called in all 90 of its drivers Thursday afternoon. The Indy Snow Force, as it is known, will maintain the city streets. Reinforcements may be called in, if the snow totals hit the top end of the predictions.

 

Crews from the Indiana Department of Transportation will treat and clear the highways.
