ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Winter weather wreaked havoc on most major roadways in the St. Louis area overnight.
A few inches of dry snow fell, but blustery wind kept plows working overtime with little to show for it.
“It’s a matter of repetition,” said David Wrone, spokesman for the St. Louis County Highway Department. “You get a lane cleared, but a half-an-hour to an hour later its recovered.”
“With the temperatures as cold as they are, the salt is not very effective,” explained Becky Almeroth, with MoDot. “We’ve had to add some beet juice and calcium chloride to that salt.”
