Winter storm brings traffic to a crawl for local interstates

News

A winter storm shuts down vital interstates in the four-state region.  

With snow totals two to four inches, by noon this Thursday, November 15, and with more snow, sleet, and freezing rain to continue into the afternoon and evening hours Thursday night, motorists can expect local and regional roadways to be crawling with traffic or to become a complete shutdown on the four-states’ main arteries.  

Weather conditions are expected to deteriorate as we head into the afternoon and evening hours, as snow will transition into sleet and ice across the region, before turning into rain as we head into early Friday morning.  

Commuters will see significant delays for the evening commute along with the morning commute Friday, November 16. Road conditions will be icy and slushy around the region through Friday morning. By Friday afternoon, with crews working at full capacity, we may see the roads begin to flow with traffic again.    

The National Weather Service says the winter storm could dump up to six inches of snow in the region, along with a quarter of an inch of ice. Locations around the four-state remain under a Winter Storm Warning until 4 a.m. EST Friday, as the storm tracks up into New England.
