GDOT working several problem areas in NE Ga.

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Georgia Department of Transportation crews were working several problem areas in northeast Georgia as of noon today.

"Please be wary if you must drive today especially when driving on bridges as icing occurs on bridges first. We are starting to get reports of icing on bridges so please slow down, give yourself plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you and use lower gears on your vehicle for additional traction. Currently it is snowing across Northeast Georgia but not sticking to roadways. Crews are plowing snow in higher elevations specifically in the Mountains. We ask you to please stay home and not drive unless it is an emergency," said Bayne Smith, District Engineer for Northeast Georgia.
