The City of Wichita says second shift responders will report for snow duty at midnight.

The city says crews will put down a light application of salt-sand mix on emergency route bridges, hills, intersections and curves.

"However, we will continue to monitor future forecasts, and adjust plans accordingly," the city said on Twitter.

City crews were forced to shut down Kellogg after nearly ten accidents caused by the fog and slippery road conditions.

Storm Team 12 says we can expect more of the same as the icy fog lingers into Wednesday and Thursday.

Wichita police say Kellogg has re-opened. Wichita's major highway was closed early Tuesday morning due to several non-injury crashes caused by slick road conditions.


11:26 a.m.

Wichita police say the Emergency Accident Reporting Plan is in effect until this afternoon.

EARP allows motorists who are involved in a non-injury accident to move their vehicles, exchange information with the other driver involved and report the accident within 24 hours of occurrence. If there is an injury or alcohol use is suspected, call 911 and officers will respond to the accident.

Motorists can get an accident form at local are Quik Trip’s, Kwik Shops, police substations or report the accident online at

Wichita drivers were apparently caught off guard by icy road conditions across the city Tuesday morning.

Several crashes were reported all over town, including several along Kellogg near downtown. Those crashes prompted crews to close down part of that roadway.

Thankfully, there were no major injuries reported.
