The Missouri State Highway Patrol has continued to face high call volumes Monday, as a blanket of snow and persistent freezing temperatures have made road conditions poor. Troop F, which serves the major lake counties, has posted a number of crash reports and road condition updates throughout the day.

If you plan on traveling outside of the Troop F area today, Troops A,D,H,and I are currently experiencing a high call volume due to the deteriorating road conditions.
