(Atlantic) Cass County Secondary Road Crews continue working to push the heavy wet snow off the roads.
“From our aspect, the heavy wet snow is good,” said Charles Marker, Cass County Engineer. “That pushes off of the road; we can get it off onto the shoulders. It won’t have a tendency to blow once it’s on the ground, so I don’t think the blizzard conditions will be affected by ground snow, just what’s in the air.”
Cass County Engineer Charles Marker said it takes about two hours to make the rounds on the paved roads. He said they will continue to work for a couple hours after the snowfall ends to get everything pushed off the roads.
“The only place I can see where we seem to have a problem with the wet slushy roads is the gravel roads, they seem to be awful slick underneath,” said Marker. “It’s just nearly impossible to get all of that wet water and rock tightened up by pushing it off, so that’s where we seem to see the dangerous spots for driving; so be careful on those.”
Marker said if you have any problems with your vehicle try to get it off of the road so they can continue to get the roads cleared.
