MoDOT WINTER TRAVEL UPDATE: Wednesday-Thursday, Jan. 20-21; Travel Discouraged Due to Expected Icy Conditions‏

 
MoDOT advising drivers to avoid travel Wednesday evening through Thursday due to expected icy road conditions.

Freezing drizzle and light snow are again in the forecast for Wednesday evening into late Thursday night, January 20-21.  Icy road conditions are expected.  

Weather Conditions: Freezing drizzle and light snow are forecasted to begin during the early evening hours along Missouri’s western border near Joplin and Nevada.  Freezing drizzle will overspread southwest Missouri overnight into early Thursday morning.  The result will be ice covered roads and surfaces.  The system is not forecasted to leave the area until late Thursday night.  The result will be icy roads from Wednesday evening, through morning AND afternoon rush hours on Thursday.

Road Clearing: MoDOT crews will be out ahead of the storm and will run ALL routes using ice-clearing chemicals along with abrasives, concentrating on the heaviest traveled roads first including I-49, I-44, Route 60, Route 65, etc.  However, despite their best efforts, crews will not be able to keep roads from icing over as the storm sets up over southwest Missouri.  As long as there is precipitation in the area, roads will remain slick.

As they can, crews will treat hills, curves and intersections on lesser traveled roads.
If drivers MUST be on the roads, they are urged to give ALL plows ample room to work.  Please stay back at least 100 feet from the back of a plow and avoid passing the large trucks.

Travel Conditions: Drivers are urged to AVOID TRAVEL if possible until road conditions improve.  Constant freezing drizzle will mean that roadways will be ice covered and slick and will remain that way until the system moves out of the area. Due to the nature of freezing drizzle, pavements may appear wet, but will actually be ice-covered.

MoDOT crews will stay on the roads as long as progress is being made and crews remain safe.
MoDOT’s intent is to stay on the roads, treating them until major routes are back to mostly clear conditions. Lesser traveled roads will continue to have ice patches but crews will treat hills, curves and intersections.

Road Condition Information: To find the most up-to-date road conditions in southwest Missouri and statewide, check MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map.  MoDOT also has a free Traveler Information mobile app for smartphones.
 Winter Weather Driving Tips:
  • Buckle up
  • Slow down
  • Stay at least 100 feet behind a truck plowing/treating road
  • Do not pass snow plows
  • Be alert for changing road conditions
  • Allow for extra travel time
  • Carry an emergency kit in your vehicle that includes food, water, blankets, flashlight and abrasives including cat litter

Weather update: Frigid Sunday for all

A shot of Arctic air is on its way. Temperatures will steadily fall through the day on Saturday. That means we'll see a midnight high tonight and then down periscope until Sunday morning. Wind chills by then will drop below zero for just about everyone. Easily the coldest temps of the season so far.

One more thing....a band of snow is expected to move from southwest through central and east central MO on Saturday. There will be a sharp edge to the band with the northwest edge near a Clinton to Sedalia to Moberly line.

Could see 1/2" to 1" of snow from there to Fayette and Boonville. Heavier snows will be further east. Rest of the region trace amounts at best.

Obituary - William Karl "W. K." Jenkins

William Karl "W. K." Jenkins, 91, Adrian, Missouri, died Wednesday, January 6, 2016 at his home. Masonic services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, January 9, 2016 at the Adrian United Methodist Church in Adrian with funeral to follow. Burial will be in Crescent Hill Cemetery in Adrian. Memorial contributions may be made to the church, VFW Post 1935, or Butler Masonic Lodge #254 AF&AM.

W. K. was born May 11, 1924 in Kansas City, Missouri, the son of Hubert Alexander and Dallas Ince Jenkins. He lived with his grandparents near Crescent Hill, north of Adrian, and graduated from Adrian High School. At an early age, he developed his business skills by trapping rabbits and selling eggs. W. K. bought his first farm at the age of 19. On December 10, 1944 in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, he was united in marriage to his wife of 71 years, Mary Earlene Robinson. To this union 6 children were born.

W. K. served his country in World War II in the Merchant Marines and saw action on “D”Day at the initial invasion of Normandy. He spoke little of his military service but injured his shoulder during service at Normandy. He began his career as a journeyman carpenter and worked for Safeway stores and later at Allied Signal (Bendix) for 35 years. He began his career in ranching raising registered Hereford cattle. He purchased a new John Deere A with a 2 bottom plow in the early 1950’s.

W. K’s humble childhood gave him a desire to work hard, to succeed and to value a college education which he did not have the financial means to acquire. He listed among his greatest achievements that each of his 6 children were graduates of the University of Missouri-Columbia. He instilled in his children the values of hard work, determination, and critical thinking. He achieved much in life by his relentless energy and sheer determination. This drive to succeed, work hard, and stay busy, was with him his entire life. He had activities and goals planned that would have taken years to accomplish.

In later years, when he spent less time on his business ventures, he devoted many hours to the Masonic Lodge, Adrian and the VFW Post #1935. W. K. was the unofficial humorist. The habit of telling stories got him into trouble more than once with his wife. He was a truly unique individual that saw the world from his own perspective.

W. K. Jenkins was preceded in death by daughter-in-law, Barbara Jenkins, brothers, Fred Jenkins and John Jenkins. He is survived by his wife, Earlene Jenkins, of the home; children, Karl Jenkins of Rich Hill, Robert Jenkins and wife, Kris of Rich Hill, Mary Anne Green and husband, Steve of Adrian, Karla Jenkins Wilson and husband, Trent of Butler, Hugh Jenkins and wife, Marcia of Butler, Patricia Inglish and husband, Mike of California, Missouri; 14 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren, and one brother, Jerry Jenkins and wife, Betty of Bartlett,Tennessee.

Nixon supports bill to raise Missouri gas tax 1.5 cents

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Missouri Governor Jay Nixon says he believes small increases in fuel taxes are the best way to raise money for roads and bridges.

At a Jefferson City news conference Tuesday, Nixon said he favors a bill from Poplar Bluff Republican Sen. Doug Libla to raise the gasoline tax by 1.5 cents per gallon and the diesel tax by 3.5 cents. A similar bill didn't make it out of the Senate last session.

The Missouri Department of Transportation is searching for funding after voters rejected a sales tax in 2014. Other proposed methods for funding road and bridge repairs include raising taxes on tobacco or moving the Missouri Highway Patrol out of the Transportation Department budget.

Nixon says those proposals aren't realistic long-term fixes. The 2016 legislative session begins Wednesday.
