TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)—Winter weather is expected to hit parts of the viewing area in the early morning hours Saturday. Crews in Tippecanoe County are already out preparing the roads.

Salt and brine will be put down Friday evening before they start their shift early Saturday morning. INDOT Spokesperson Debbie Calder said a large part of the focus shifts to major highways ahead of winter weather.

"We have coverage on all of our roads, but we do usually have a couple of trucks that run the routes on I-65 definitely and our four-lane roads so that's our number one job in the winter even though it is spring," said Calder. "But we will continue to take care of the roadways and get them cleaned off for everyone."

Calder said trucks will be on 12-hour shifts starting around midnight. She said if you do have to be on the roads Saturday, plan ahead and give road crews space.
