Road Crews Prepare for Bad Weather

02/15/2013 An abrupt change in the weather forecast got road crews busy Friday afternoon.  While Saturday was predicted to be cold with blowing snow and temperatures stuck in the mid thirties,  there was no predicted accumulation of snow.  However late Friday the forecasters began noticing a change in the predicted conditions that caused concern that the snow could actually accumulate and other  weather conditions could cause the roads to become hazardous. So crews went to work dumping thousands of gallons of salt brine on the major traffic arteries. the brine had proven to be effective in delaying the accumulation of the snow on the roads so work crews can keep the snow pushed out of the way. WRGC will keep you posted on the weather conditions Saturday and Sunday.
