Washington County would like to notify the public about the road conditions after Thursday night’s ice and snow storm. County personnel have been working since 5 a.m. on Friday, December 19 to try and remove a thick layer of ice, sleet and snow mixture. The general road conditions for the county roads contain areas of bare pavement and then areas of at least an inch of ice, sleet and snow pack. As a result of these road conditions, they are urging the public to drive with caution and to treat the roads as if they are still completely covered. Washington County will continue to work on clearing the roads as long as the material keeps coming off Friday and will be back out again Saturday trying to clear the roads.
