Road Crews Were Prepared in Case Storm Hit Big

Division of Highways crews were spread out and using all resources possible to keep the thousands of road miles in the district clear on Wednesday.

It was around 10:30 or 11 p.m. Tuesday that trucks started lining up at the DOH to load materials in them. From there, they went to different staging areas in the counties.
The reason you may have seen them stopped along the sides of the roads instead of driving is because they wait to put a mix down since if it goes on dry roads, it just blows around and is a waste of money. If it's expected to freeze, a pre-treatment is put down to prepare for that.
The snow we received during this storm is a little more dangerous because of the freezing aspect. That's what caused some of the accidents.
Even though there's not much on the roads, it can be slushy and cause some problems.

Extra road crews did head up to Preston County since that area was hit more than most in this district.
