Road crews worried about extra danger of icy roads

"We're all geared up. All trucks are geared up, chained up and we've got plenty of salt so we're ready to go," says Jeff Nicely with the Madison County Road Department.

Nicely is gearing up for a 16 hour shift. He has to hit the road as soon as the first flake falls.

"The supervisor will be out and he'll make the decision on when we start. And he'll call everybody in and get to pushing and salting."

Nicely is asking anyone who doesn't have to drive Thursday, to stay inside. He says less traffic makes it a lot easier for crews to clear roads, especially if they're dealing with ice.

"It's slick and the salt trucks want to move too, so we've got a concern with that."
