Traction Problems for Tractor Trailer Rigs on area roads

02-01-14 WB 80-94 stalled semi
The Indiana Department of Transportation is reporting that a stalled semi forced the closure of the westbound Interstate 80/94 exit ramp to southbound Calumet for a little while
this morning (Sat. Feb.1, 2014).

Snow packed roads due to heavy snowfall that continues to move through Northwest Indiana is making it very difficult for tractor trailer trucks to gain traction on even the slightest grades.
INDOT urges passenger vehicles to not follow too closely behind semis and to slow down.
