Johns Creek roads remain iced over Thursday morning

February 13, 2014

Motor GraderAs of 5:30 a.m. Thursday, Johns Creek roads remain coated with ice and should be considered hazardous.

Sleet and snow fell intermittently overnight while temperatures stayed below freezing. Two motor-graders worked through the night to clear major roads in Johns Creek. Eight Public Works crews spread salt and sand mixture over bridges and major roads all night as well.

Although no roads are closed, Johns Creek officials said motorists should stay off the roads until the rising temperatures melt the frozen precipitation in the afternoon.

"We are still under a State of Emergency declaration," said Police Chief Ed Densmore. "People need to remain off the streets. The roads are slick and potentially very dangerous."

The National Weather Service predicts diminishing precipitation through the day with freezing temperatures continuing through the morning.
