KDOT reports snowpacked roads throughout region
Roadway conditions across Northeast Kansas range from spots to completely snowpacked. In the Kansas City metro, which includes Johnson, Wyandotte and Leavenworth counties, roads are mostly snowpacked as of 6 a.m. Wednesday, KDOT reported. The same was true in Douglas County.
KDOT said nighttime crews have been out overnight plowing snow off the roadways. They have currently plowed back all mainlines and are now working on areas. Crews are only spot treating currently (salt or salt/sand mix). They plan to treat all roadways in the early morning hours (8-9 a.m. timeframe in metro areas) to hopefully begin some melting with sun and/or increase in traffic.
During the early morning commutes, drivers should still allow extra time, drive for the conditions on the roadways they are travelling on, and use caution as roadways will be slick in spots due to the frigid temps.
