State Roads Slow to Recover From Latest Storm

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The condition of state maintained roads and highways, two days after the latest snowfall in southwest Missouri, are slow to improve.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The condition of state maintained roads and highways, two days after the latest snowfall in southwest Missouri, are slow to improve.

The extreme cold has been an impediment to getting roads cleared because snow-melting chemicals are not effective when temperatures are so low.

According to MoDOT's interactive road conditions map, as of 4:00 am Tuesday,  roads throughout nearly all of southwest Missouri are covered to partly covered by ice and snow this morning.
The map shows Highway 13 remains snow covered until about the Polk County line north of Springfield.

 Interstate 44 from about Mount Vernon east remains partly covered.  Highway 160 north of Springfield is covered, but is mostly clear south of Springfield . 

The same is true for Highway 65, which is snow covered from Springfield north to Hickory County, where it improves around the Preston area.  Highway 65 south of Springfield to Branson is mostly clear, according to MoDOT's map. 

Conditions are better in west-central Missouri along Highway 71 from Barton County north, where MoDOT indicates the highway is clear.
