We strive to create the safest possible driving conditions during inclement weather. Our top priorities are county main roads, providing access for emergency services and clearing designated snow routes.
During inclement weather, our crews run 24/7 to treat as many roads as possible. We recommend staying put during an ice or snow storm as the best practice, but if you need to venture out, check current road conditions and traffic cameras at www.tripcheck.com.61531
