Snowfall north of Louisville has increased in intensity approaching the noon-day hour as Indiana Department of Transportation’s yellow plow trucks head back to their unit locations for a shift change. INDOT drivers have been on their assigned routes for 12 hours. All anticipate returning to their trucks at midnight when noon-shift drivers call it a day.
A full contingency of mechanics and support personal are also on 12-hour shifts.
The Falls City Subdistrict reports continuous plowing along all snow routes. Highways are snow covered in the Sellersburg area. They are snow-packed at Corydon. Many should be considered hazardous.
According to one shift foreman, “It’s been a long night. It’s cold. But the snow is easy to push off the pavement.
A dry snow, INDOT has had little trouble clearing roadways. But the heavier snowfall means snow routes are going to be re-covered before plow trucks make return passes.
