Winter weather not through

(Continued)

Knoxville —

For the Secondary Road Department, yesterday's winter weather event is still going. County Engineer Roger Schletzbaum said his crews have been over all of the roads in the county at least once. Wind is blowing much of the snow back on the roads, especially on gravel. Paved roads are faring better. 

There is a lawy of ice which has formed on the roads, under the snow. With today's cold temperatures, the crews are struggling the clear the roads entirely. 

Crews have been running since 4 a.m. They intend to resume at 4 a.m. Friday as well. Drivers are advised that if they must travel, use caution. 

"I think the operative word here is to drive for the conditions you encounter," Schletzbaum said. Slow down, plan your routes and be careful, he said.
