With the impactful winter storm, the Indiana State Police is asking that people do not call 911 or any dispatch centers to check on road conditions.  The volume of calls is expected to increase for emergencies and phone lines need to stay open.  Road conditions are expected to be very poor overnight, through the day tomorrow, and possibly beyond in the lake effect areas.  Several area counties are under blizzard warnings due to the high wind that will decrease visibility and make travel dangerous.

People wanting to check road conditions can go to 511in.org , download the INDOT Trafficwise app on your smartphone, or by calling 1-800-262- ROAD (7623).
