Major highways have improved in Wyandotte County, as crews have continued to work on area highways here, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.
As of 11:30 a.m. Friday, KDOT has changed the highway conditions in the Kansas City area from "partly snowpacked" to "wet and slushy."
Some highways in northeast Kansas are still snowpacked, according to KDOT. Also, side streets are generally still snowpacked.
KDOT northeast Kansas daytime snowplow crews are out working on clearing mainline lanes and pushing back snow from shoulders, and ramp interchange areas,according to a spokesman.
Road conditions have continued to greatly improve during the morning hours throughout northeast Kansas. In some areas, motorists can actually see wet pavement now on the roadways.
Roads and highways may still be slick, the KDOT spokesman said, so motorists are asked to drive slowly, allow plenty of extra time, stay a safe distance from other vehicles and drive for the existing roadway conditions.
Before you head out for your daytime commutes, you can check updated Kansas roadway conditions at www.kandrive.org or call 5-1-1. Also, you can see camera views of the current highway conditions online. Highway conditions also are updated at www.kcscout.net.
In Wyandotte County, the public schools are closed Friday, Feb. 22. City Hall in Kansas City, Kan., reopened around 10 a.m. Friday. Wyandotte County District Court is closed Friday.
It's best to check before heading out on the road, to see if a store, an office, an activity or event is still happening, or if your work is on for today.
