Chattooga County Road crews had a long day on Monday, and it would appear that they are in for another long day on Tuesday.  Public Works Director Lamar Canada told AM 1180 that crews would be headed back out this morning, hitting some of most travelled roads first and then moving on to other county roads – scraping and the spreading salt and gravel.

Yesterday county road crews got to many of the county roads, but were not able to totally clear many of the roads.  With temperatures forecasted to be back below freezing overnight, the slush from Monday’s road work would be freezing again into ice by Tuesday morning.

Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters is urging Chattooga County residents not to travel unless necessary this morning and to give the county road crews time to get roads in passable shape.
