Fire Chief Bob Howard said at 8 a.m. this morning that most roads were passable with caution and all roads should improve quickly today as the temperatures rise and sun hits icy patches.
But, he said Highway 53 West at Hill City, Cove Road from the intersection at Burnt Mountain to the top of the S-Curves near the Grandview Road intersection and Monument Road were all still extremely slick at 8 a.m. He said fire and sheriff personnel were stationed at those spots to slow drivers down.
All roads may still have some icy patches, he said.
Howard reported four small “fender-benders” at the time of the interview.
