The State Department of Transportation is urging drivers to watch for possible flooding on Illinois roads. IDOT spokesperson Paul Wappel says the situation can be dangerous following several recent downpours that have some roads saturated with water. He adds that motorists should never try to push their vehicles out of the water by themselves. Wappel also advises the public to check road conditions by logging on at getting-around-illinois-dot-com.
