Lafayette-Drivers should be aware of potentially hazardous conditions on I-65; specifically in White County from the 185 mile marker to the 200 mile marker.

This section of the interstate is especially slick and troopers are working numerous slide-offs, and jacknifed semis and crashes.

Throughout the early morning hours new snow has fallen. The new snow, wind and sub zero temperatures has made the roadway, ramps and bridges extremely slick.

INDOT crews have been spreading salt, and other materials throughout this time, but the crews are finding it extremely challenging to keep up with this weather event.

Motorists and Semi drivers are asked to please rethink your trip, staying off the interstate entirely is the safest option.

Use alternate routes.

The Indiana State police say that if you must drive today, please adjust your speed for conditions.

Slow down and give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination and expect delays.

Remember to move over and slow down when you see emergency lights and give INDOT plow trucks room to work.
