IMPENDING WINTER STORM PREPARATION

The Kansas Highway Patrol is preparing for the impending winter storm that will be affecting the Kansas City Metropolitan area on Tuesday, February 6th. Due to the predicted snowfall amounts, the Kansas Highway Patrol will begin to remove abandoned vehicles from the shoulders of the interstates and highways at 8:30am on February 6, 2018. The removal of abandoned vehicles will be to assist the Kansas Department of Transportation in the snow removal process, as abandoned vehicles inhibit KDOT’s ability to clear the roadway of snow.

Motorists whose vehicles have been removed from the roadways can call *47 to speak with Kansas Highway Patrol Communications to determine where their vehicle was towed.
