Road crews battle snowfall, frigid temperatures

Additional snowfall has made for slippery road conditions.  Be careful if you have to travel.

“We are hearing reports of anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of snow,” said County Engineer Mark Brasher.

“Those roads that were clear yesterday are snow-covered this morning,” added Major Barry Smith of the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office.  “The only thing working for us this morning is that the temperatures are in the mid-20s.”

City, County, and State road crews have been working around-the-clock to clear streets and highways of snow and ice.  But the amount of snowfall and the frigid temperatures have made it a difficult task.

Overnight lows will remain in the teens until Saturday, when warmer weather is expected.

“Just remember if you do have to get out, drive a low speed and keep good distance between the vehicle in front of you,” Smith said.  “You never know when they are going to stop or start sliding.”
