Paved Roads in Better Shape, Gravel Roads Difficult to Pass

A message from the Henry County Engineer, Jake Hotchkiss, reveals that the plow truck drivers are working hard to clear our roads. He mentions that the extreme temperatures, in conjunction with the snow amounts, make it difficult to keep the equipment running. They are continuing to cover ground each day, but with blowing snow over the weekend, much of their hard work was soon covered up.

According to Hotchkiss, pavements are passable. He urges drivers to drive with caution as drifting is still occurring and there is ice on many roads.

At this moment, many gravel roads are impassable, as snow drifts are impossible to drive thru. Please do not attempt to drive through the snow drifts. Please continue to be patient, as many people are working very hard to ensure the roads are clear during this unprecedented storm.
