Current Johns Creek road conditions & accident reporting information

January 29, 2014

IciclesRoad conditions — 8 p.m. update:
Icing continues to be a problem on many sections of roads citywide. With nightfall, melted patches of snow will likely turn to black ice, say roads personnel. There's been no wind to dry up these wet patches, and temperatures will drop as night nears so driving conditions will worsen.

Currently, the following roads and/or intersections should be avoided:

Nesbit Ferry Road from Brumbelow to Holcomb Bridge roads
Abbotts Bridge Road from Abbotts Run to Abbotts Walk
Medlock Crossing Parkway from Medlock Bridge to State Bridge roads
Old Alabama Road from Buice Road to Waits Ferry
Roads previously listed as ones to avoid have now been sanded, but icy conditions persist. Public Works crews are continuing to spread salt and sand on trouble spots through the night. Driving should be limited to essential trips only. Don't travel overnight unless you have a very good reason and take a vehicle emergency kit with you.

If you must leave for work tomorrow, it is recommended that you leave after sunrise.

For immediate updates on Johns Creek road conditions follow Johns Creek Police on Facebook and Twitter.

Road crews continue to treat icy patches of roads throughout the city. Please report any negative conditions you see to our Call Center at 678-512-3200.

See the City's Road Work map for road work projects, icy road conditions, road/lane closures or other incidents that may affect your drive or neighborhood.
