The Joplin Police Department is officially under Emergency Road Conditions.
According to JPD: “We are now only responding to injury crashes and crashes blocking the road where the vehicles can’t be moved. We will not respond to non injury crashes.
The side roads, bridges and especially 249 got very slick.
The main roads are much better due to multiple road crews efforts in the area.
If you are involved in a crash and have any doubt about the criteria for a response or not call 417-623-3131. Calling 911 is appropriate if there are injuries or other major issues.”
