CHICAGO (AP) - Transportation officials say they’re getting ready to respond to a winter storm forecast to move through northern Illinois.

The Illinois Department of Transportation says travel routes could be impacted by the storm that’s expected Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. As many as 8 inches of snow are expected in some areas.

IDOT says it has about 1,750 trucks and more than 3,700 employees to remove snow and ice from state routes.

Motorists are encouraged to be extra cautious and allow more time for travel.
