Texarkana Police Caution Getting Out On The Roads
Now that the snow has finally stopped on the Texarkana area, and the temperatures for today are looking like they may get just slightly above freezing some people may be tempted to get out on the roads but carbongallery id="6021b2553ad6e349eeb32732" title="LOOK: Answers to 30 common COVID-19 vaccine questions" layout="twocolumn"]
the Texarkana Police Department are warning folks to stay home.
Here is the information they shared today on their Facebook page.
The good news is that the storm has passed to the east so we are not gonna get any more snow - hopefully for a really long time. The bad news is that the roads are still bad. While temperatures are expected to get above freezing (barely) later this afternoon, the snow and ice that we have now aren't going anywhere anytime soon. The packed snow that's on the roadways is now a sheet of really thick ice. The flyover that goes to both east and westbound Interstate 30 is still closed.
Road crews are out again early this morning sanding and plowing streets as quickly as they can, but it's going to take a while to get done. They'll be focusing on major roadways. We can all see the light at the end of the tunnel, but we're not quite there yet. As we've been saying all week, please stay home today unless you absolutely have to be out. If you do have to, please be very careful.
As you can see in my pictures I took this morning, the roads on the Arkansas side are still very dangerous. If you have to get out today be extra careful. I have been driving all this week on the roads and they are the worst today. Be safe and I am so looking forward to the weekend and the higher temperatures.
