Impending Winter Storm Preparation in the Kansas City Metro Area

The Kansas Highway Patrol is preparing for the impending winter storm that will be affecting the Kansas City Metropolitan area today, on Sunday, November 25.  Due to the predicted snowfall amounts, The Kansas Highway Patrol will be towing any abandoned vehicles from the shoulders of the interstates and highways.  

The removal of abandoned vehicles is already underway. Abandoned vehicles inhibit KDOT’s ability to completely clear the roadway of snow. Towing the vehicles will assist the Kansas Department of Transportation in the snow removal process. 

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.
