Travel still slow going after recent winter storm

Travel slowed down considerably Saturday after light snowfall across the area. Conditions improved gradually for area highways and Emporia's major arterial streets, but slick spots remain on major city streets and residential streets are completely snow-covered Sunday.

Travel conditions improved Saturday. Emporia's major arterial streets are seasonal, while driving conditions on the residential collector streets vary from seasonal to mostly covered. Side streets, residential intersections and elevated surfaces are slick and will remain that way at least for most of Sunday.

Most area highways are now reported as clear by KanDrive.org. Interstate 35 east of Kansas Highway 130, Kansas Highway 58 from Madison east to US Highway 75 and US-75 from I-35 south through Coffey County all have seasonal driving conditions.
