The roads may still be a mess, but MoDOT says they're making progress and the sunshine warming the pavement is helping. MoDOT's Dave Mitchell tells News Talk KZRG their emphasis now is on the area's heaviest traveled roads.
"I-44 is listed now as partly covered all the way from the stateline past Springfield. I-49 gets better as you go north of Carthage."
He says give yourself plenty of time for safe travel while keeping a safe distance from plow trucks. You can find the latest updates on the road conditions at MoDOT.org.
