Johns Creek using motor-graders to keep roads clear

February 12, 2014

Icy pineTo keep major roads clear of ice and snow, Johns Creek is supplementing its spreader trucks with two motor-graders and a bladed truck. As of 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, roads in Johns Creek are increasingly slick but still open. City crews are concentrating on keeping major roads navigable.

Johns Creek Police have 10 units helping identify iced-over stretches of road. The City is employing three spreader trucks, and four smaller trucks for manually distributing salt and sand. Gov. Nathan Deal and City officials encourage everyone to stay off the roads today.

Power outages remain a possibility. Georgia Power customers can report or monitor outages by visiting Georgia Power's website.
