OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Round two of winter weather in a week was on the way Wednesday night, but the winter warnings were the same. With Thursday morning's commute in its bullseye this time, road crews geared up to prepare safe pathways.

While it doesn't look like the metro is going to get a ton of snow, it's the freezing rain MoDOT is most concerned about.

Crews on the Missouri side will get in around 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday. MoDOT says workers will head out when it gets messy.

FOX 4 also went out to Overland Park to talk to city employees about their plan. Tuesday's storm caused 60 car accidents. The city is expecting snow to hit around 2:00 a.m. and turn to freezing rain by 6:00 a.m. Snow plowers will get in around 1:00 a.m. to prepare.

Overland Park says its employees are a bit fatigued, but the top priority is keeping the community safe.

"City leaders have always said whatever it takes to get this done. We have 50 drivers two shifts, 12 hours each day. Fortunately the storms have been light in nature. They haven't been like 09 storm, or 2011. They get to recover but they do miss time away from home. Those that work at night have to adjust to sleeping during the day," Sean Reilly said.
