NORTH FULTON -The North Fulton cities are tentatively planning to open today, albeit with a delayed start.

Milton is opening its doors at 10 a.m. this morning, even though most Milton roads are still considered extremely dangerous due to ice and snow.

Roswell city hall is opening at 11 a.m.

Alpharetta municipal offices are scheduled to open at noon, with court services beginning at 1 p.m.

Johns Creek city offices will be open at noon.

According to Jason Wright, communications manager for Milton, his city's roads range from "OK to very bad, very quickly, often on the same road."

However sand trucks were being deployed throughout Milton and two front-end loaders are headed to Milton to try and remove debris that has accumulated on the roads. However, if the debris has frozen to the road, removal might be difficult of impossible.

Highway 92 in Roswell backed up to the Cobb County line and the city is urging residents to stay off the roads unless it is an emergency.

12:03 p.m.: Douglas Road at Southlake Drive in Alpharetta is closed due to ice.1:30 p.m.: Holcomb Bridge Road at the Fulton/ Cherokee County line has closed due to ice.

Holcomb Bridge Road has been closed at Fulton Cherokee line.

You've got to be kidding or has the Cherokee County line been extended to Ga hwy 9 in Roswell.
