(KMOV) – Road crews in both Missouri and Illinois say they have worked and will continue to work diligently to make streets and highways safe for drivers as the snow arrives Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

Workers with the Missouri Department of Transportation are working 12 hour shifts, and have pretreated roads to make for better conditions. MoDOT officials say crews have been plowing nonstop, but they might face some difficulty during the morning commute because cars on the road will complicate snow plow navigation.

Officials with IDOT also say they have been working to treat roads, and hope to be in “good shape” for the morning.

Drivers are advised to give themselves additional time Thursday morning as traffic will likely cause delays.
