With the rise of temperatures above freezing and the work of the Louisiana Department of Transportation, our travel conditions have improved. However, much of Louisiana will see the potential of a deep freeze again later this evening and into tonight. The drop in temperature will lead to the potential of “black ice” forming on our highways. Black ice is hard to detect as the ice tends to blend in on the roadway surface. All parts of the roadway are subject to forming black ice; however, it is most commonly found on bridges, overpasses, and roadways beneath overpasses. Troopers will be actively patrolling to assist stranded motorists and monitor roadway conditions; however, LSP offers the following driving tips if motorists encounter black ice: · Remain calm and avoid overreacting. · Allow your vehicle to pass over the ice without applying brakes. · Keep your steering wheel straight. Turing the wheel increases the chances of sliding and losing control of the vehicle. · If you enter a skid, take your foot off the accelerator and gently turn your steering wheel in the direction of the skid. If you must be on the roads, please remember to wear your seat belt, give extra space between your vehicle and other vehicles, and reduce speeds. If motorists should become stranded, they may utilize the *LSP (*577) system from a cell phone to contact the nearest LSP Troop to request help. Motorists can access the latest updates on real-time traffic and road conditions using the 511 Traveler Information System by dialing 511 from their telephone. Out-of-state travelers can call 1-888-ROAD-511 (1-888-762-3511). Travelers can also access this information by visiting the 511 Traveler Information Web site at www.511la.org.
