Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) continues to deal with the snow storm that moved through the state Monday.
Colonel John Bolduc, NSP superintendent, says roads conditions are poor throughout Nebraska.
“Roads still are very slick in many parts of the state,” Bolduc said during a conference call with news reporters. “Up in the Troop B area, between Norfolk and Omaha, we still have some road closures.”
He says drivers need to still be careful today, because roads remain slick, and give yourself plenty of time to get where you are going.
“Allow for greater stopping distances,” he advises. “We still have icy conditions in many parts of the state. It depends on your locale, but check 511 for road conditions and be constantly alert.”
The Nebraska 511 mobile app and website have real-time traffic conditions.
“Please use caution when you see those emergency vehicles, tow trucks, and snowplows,” Bolduc said. “Give yourself greater [following] distances. That’s going to be a condition we deal with the next 24 to 48 hours.”
