Illinois State Police District 05 would like to remind motorists to use caution while traveling along wet roadways due to the potential to hydroplane. Avoid passing through water that is covering roadways. Shallow water flowing across a roadway is capable of pushing a vehicle off of the road. Due to water eroding the pavement, water that is

flowing across the roadway may be deeper than it appears. Periodic updates will be made available throughout the day.

Additional road condition information can be obtained by contacting the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) at 1-800-452-IDOT (4368) or on the Internet at:
