"We have all of our plows out at this point," said Mary Foster, spokesperson for The Indiana Department of Transportation.
The Indiana Department of Transportation says its snow plows covered more than 140 routes spanning 45 miles each. Foster say INDOT advises motorists to let the plows lead the way.
"It' still safer to follow the plow truck because you don't know what's in front of the truck. You know what's behind the truck has been plowed so it's actually safer to follow the plow," said Foster
The combination of gusting winds and constant snow-fall throughout much of the day had some questioning if the plows were really on the job.
"Drivers who are out may notice that it looks as if the road hasn't been plowed," said Foster.
However, Foster says that's not the case, rather INDOT snow plow drivers are working 12 hour shifts around the clock.
"They are trying their best to get the route covered and then turning around and doing all over again. Rest Assured they are out there plowing even if it looks as if they are not," said Foster.
