UPDATED: Roads will refreeze overnight.

Latest update: The bitterly cold temperatures overnight mean all moisture on roadways will likely refreeze. Roads that were previously clear might be dangerous as snow melted by motorists and sunshine is likely to become ice.

In addition, efforts to sand iced areas are proving difficult because the particulate cannot attach itself to the surface of some frozen patches. Please continue to avoid travel, and if you must be extremely cautious.

Road conditions will continue to remain hazardous in spots until temperatures increase. Milton’s crews will resume work in the morning.

The City of Milton wants residents to know checking and fixing main thoroughfares are the aim of operations. Neighborhood streets, which are unsafe and will remain so until temperatures rise substantially, are addressed on a public safety basis. That is, they are treated if an emergency requiring police and fire occurs and their vehicles are not able to enter.

Stay up to date with road conditions with Milton's Nixle, Facebook or Twitter feeds.
