Getting stranded on a toll road is bad enough; getting stuck out in the frigid weather can be dangerous.

So Illinois Tollway crews have beefed up their routes to help drivers who need it.

The Tollway has mobilized the 24-hour Zero Weather Road to look for drivers stranded in disabled vehicles and respond to calls that come in to *999 motorist assistance, Illinois Tollway dispatch or Illinois State Police District 15.

There are at least 11 Zero Weather Road Patrols located throughout the system.

Tollway officials urge drivers to stay in their vehicles instead of getting out to seek help.

The Tollway reminds customers that six oases located along the Tollway system serve as warming centers and also provide drivers an opportunity to check their vehicles or simply take a break.
