Travel advisory for Pickens County -- DOT engineer discusses road situation

“Better safe than sorry,” DOT engineer says. “If you can, stay at home.” 

 

         Georgia Department of Transportation crews will be out in full force tonight prepping for what regional DOT engineer Sam Wheeler expects to be icy, dangerous conditions in Pickens tomorrow.

         “I’m not a weather forecaster, but from the reports I’ve been watching we’re going to see rain this evening, which will turn to snow around midnight and go through the early morning hours,” said Wheeler Sunday afternoon. “After that the winds are going to pick up and the temperatures are going to drop fast. I expect black ice and solid ice, based on the forecast.”
