Some good news after a rough morning commute: MoDOT has opened many lanes on I-55 near Bayless.
The highway was closed for more than six hours after a collision between a tanker truck and a MoDOT plow. Authorities say the crash caused a fuel leak. Emergency responders used sandbags to keep the fuel from reaching a nearby creek.
Officials with the Missouri Department of Transportation are preparing for expected winter weather this week.
MoDOT crews are ready to plow and treat roads as needed. They want to remind drivers that even a light precipitation can cause roads to become slick. Motorists should allow for extra time when there has been inclement weather.
One of the easiest ways to check road conditions is the MoDOT Traveler Information Map which can be found at modot.org.
MoDOT also released some tips for driving in inclement weather:
·Steer and brake gently.
·Accelerate slowly at intersections.
·Allow extra space between your vehicle and the one ahead of you.
·Stay back 100 feet from snow plows that may be spreading salt.
· Avoid passing snow plows, even when on a multi-lane road.
·Be aware that bridges and overpasses generally experience freezing conditions first.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A newly released report says a funding gap exists between the transportation system that Missourians demand and the one the state can provide with current funds.
Missouri Department of Transportation officials outlined more than $70 billion of wants, needs and projects Thursday in unveiling a draft of the agency's latest 20-year plan.
But MoDot said that the amount is significantly greater than the estimated $17.3 billion of funding available over the next 20 years. One of the most expensive proposed projects - improving Interstate 70 between Kansas City and St. Louis - would cost from $2 billion to $4 billion.
MoDot talked to Missourians statewide about what they wanted in developing the draft.

It's that time of year to check and double-check and that is why safety child seat checkups will be available on Saturday.
National data reveals up to 80% of all child safety seats are installed incorrectly, so the Missouri Department of Transportation is teaming up with Safe Kids to host child safety seat checkpoints in St. Louis County, Franklin County and Jefferson County.
The checkpoints will be staffed by safety technicians from MoDOT and Safe Kids this Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm.
The checkpoint in St. Louis County is at Holy Trinity Church, 3500 St. Luke Lane in St. Ann.
