Statement as distributed Tuesday by Fort Wayne officials:
Fort Wayne, Ind. – A Winter Weather Travel Watch for Fort Wayne, Allen County, New Haven, and Woodburn has been extended. Officials will provide further updates when conditions warrant a change in travel status.
A watch means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. During a watch local travel advisory, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations is recommended. Drivers should be aware that conditions are hazardous. Please drive slowly and have emergency supplies in vehicles, along with a cell phone.
As a reminder, Indiana has a standardized county travel status process in place. A guide can be found at http://www.in.gov/dhs/traveladvisory/.
