TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. -Crews on both sides of the river were out overnight into this morning making sure roads were ready for your morning commute. All of the hard work treating the roadways apparently paid off. Roads were in good shape for the morning commute.

MoDOT officials say they kept full crews out on the roads until midnight then started to scale back. MoDOT had skeleton crews out until 7 a.m. this morning then they pulled everyone back in and wrapped up their operations for this storm.

Their crews did not find any weather-related road problems.

Across the river, IDOT says it had crews out all night into this morning as well. Like MoDOT, IDOT workers did not discover any big problems either in the metro-east.

IDOT`s Joe Monroe saying there have been more significant issues in Randolph, Washington, and Marion counties. Authorities say drivers still need to be cautious for any slick spots in the St. Louis area, especially on elevated surfaces like bridges and overpasses.

Both MoDOT and IDOT say they think the gusty winds overnight may have helped to dry out roadways.
