Snow, Ice Causing Problems on Roads

January 29, 2014

The snow is no longer falling, but the aftermath remains.

Georgia Department of Transportation Spokesperson Teri Pope said that the agency’s road crews are running into problems not just in northeast Georgia, but statewide.

“There are still very hazardous conditions from northeast Georgia to Savannah,” said Pope.  “The best place to stay is where you are.”

Stephens County officials also said roads are very treacherous, especially secondary roads.

Pope said the DOT is hoping that things will improve by later on today.

“If we can get people to stay off the roadways, we hope that by mid-afternoon … we can get ahead of this ice and snow situation,” said Pope.

For those who will be out on the roads, the DOT said those drivers should slow down, stay behind any snowplows and salt trucks, and be particularly aware of black ice conditions.
