Watch for slick spots during morning commute

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – INDOT, DPW and other road crews were out looking for slick spots Monday evening, into Tuesday morning.

They’re working to keep precipitation from freezing overnight.

A wintry mix came down in Indianapolis during the evening commute, leaving a few slide offs and accidents, but nothing like we’ve seen during other storms.

In places north of Indianapolis, more snow came down, creating more hazards for drivers, with slick rain turning to snow. In Cicero, drivers stopping at a gas station told 24-Hour News 8 it was more of the same.

“It seems to be really, really slick,” one driver said.

“It’s awful out there; I’m seeing a lot of hail,” said another.

“People seem to be slowing down quite a bit,” said another.

Roads cleared up relatively fast, as the evening commute wore on.

INDOT plans to have their night shift continue cleanup and patrol for more slick spots.

A DPW spokesperson said storms that come in wet, cause them to monitor the forecast carefully, and adjust so material and salt isn’t wasted and doesn’t just run off.
