Travel Treacherous in East Central and Northeast Iowa

iowadotlogoAMES, Iowa – Jan. 30, 2013; 11 a.m. update – The Iowa State Patrol has issued a “no travel is advised” statement in association with roadways in the northeast and parts of east central Iowa. This includes major highways such as I-80, I-380, U.S. 20, U.S. 63. U.S. 151 and U.S. 218. It also affects cities in the region such as Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Marshalltown, Waterloo, Dubuque and Decorah.

Snow is continuing to fall in all but the western third of the state and strong winds persist statewide. The Iowa DOT’s road weather information system is reporting that air and pavement temperatures remain below freezing; and the wind is gusting from 24 to 39 mph. This is reducing visibility, especially in the open, rural areas. The wind is also causing ice to glaze on the east-west roadways.
