High winds and ground drifting is making visibility difficult for plow drivers, according to Dave Fritz, maintenance supervisor for the county.

Efforts to keep crews on the roads are becoming “futile,” he said. “We’re at the mercy of Mother Nature.”

Motorists should be advised that travel conditions could become difficult this afternoon and evening.

Fritz said the evening commute could be “dicey.”

Crews will be back on the roads at 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
