GDOT crews are spreading a salt/rock mixture on all surfaces. They have already treated ice on 10 bridges in southwest Georgia. All bridges have remained open.

Wintry precipitation continues to move through the area and a winter storm warning remains in effect until 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Motorists should not pass a DOT dump truck spreading the salt/stone mixture, as stones may get kicked up at their cars and could break windshields. Please follow at least 100 feet behind DOT vehicles and never pass a Georgia DOT, contractor or local government truck treating the road.

The Department continues to ask the public to stay off the roadways until midday Wednesday at the earliest. Traffic could impede the ability of GDOT crews to reach areas that need to be treated.

Motorists who must travel should be extremely cautious. Slow down considerably; allow extra distance between yourself and other vehicles, maintain a steady speed; avoid lane changing and sudden acceleration or braking. Also, avoid any driving after dark as black ice will form on streets, roads and highways and is virtually impossible to detect in the dark.
