New snow fell overnight, and the Kansas Department of Transportation reports its crews were out treating the highways in the Kansas City area this morning.
Conditions on Wyandotte County highways were reported as wet and slushy this morning, according to KDOT.
There may still be slick spots on the highways, according to KDOT. The wet roads could refreeze in spots, and black ice could be a concern.
Motorists were asked to use extra caution at ramp, flyover and bridge areas, that will be messy due to a lot of snow in a very tight area, as well as the potential for slice spots there, a KDOT spokesman said.
Motorists are asked to take it slow, allow extra time, stay a safe distance from the other vehicles, drive for the existing conditions, put away their cell phones and buckle up.
