Carmel spokeswoman: Roads are all clear


Staff report

City spokeswoman Nancy Heck said in a statement that plowing crews completed the all-city plow about 8 hours after they began clearing all neighborhood streets in the city.

Crews had been out overnight keeping main streets clear as 8 inches of snow fell in Carmel overnight Feb. 4 and into the morning Feb. 5. At about noon Feb. 5, the secondary streets were cleared and then at 2 p.m. the all-city plow began.

Hamilton County moves to travel advisory

Conditions in Hamilton County have improved sufficiently that officials have moved roads in the unincorporated areas of the county to a yellow travel advisory. This is the lowest level of travel restrictions and means that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation and individuals should use caution or avoid those areas.

Highway Department crews have once again put in numerous hours to clear roads around the county. While road conditions have improved and most are passable, motorists should still use caution as slick, snow covered, and icy areas can occur with little advance notice. Frigid temperatures will cause any melted snow or slush on roads to refreeze into ice making for rough going since this will be difficult to remove.
