PEORIA (25 News Now) - Road crews plan to get ahead of the expected snow coming Wednesday morning. The biggest concern will be the conditions of the roads.

The McLean County Highway Department said they plan to be on the roads by 4:30 a.m.

“We will work into the evening hours to make sure the evening traffic can get home before we call it a night,” said county maintenance coordinator Eric Bird. “You’ll run into thicker spots of snow. Just take your time getting to work and traveling where you need to go.”

With the area’s highest projected snowfall in the Twin Cities, the Bloomington Public Works Department said they will have plows out on city streets by 3 a.m. Normal is taking a similar approach, scheduling all available trucks to clear the roads before morning rush hour.

Normal Public Works also continues to ask people to allow plenty of room to clear and salt the roads.
