Drifting Snow Causing Problems in Darke County
DARKE COUNTY -- Blowing and drifting in Darke County could make for a treacherous commute Thursday morning. The county engineer says Arcanum-Bears Mill Road is considered the worst road in the county for blowing and drifting snow. Crews have a lot of difficulty keeping it clear.
"State Route 47 is a lot better than it was but the back roads just totally suck. I got home around 3 p.m. and I haven't seen a snow plow yet," said Robert Brewer of Greenville.
"It's still kind of nasty out there. The back roads are still pretty bad," agreed Rita Custer of Greenville.
Plows and salt trucks have been out since 3 a.m., although it's kind of hard to tell in some areas, since all the snow has blown right back onto already icy roads. Crews don't lay down salt in these conditions because it would just get blown off the road.
"If you don't have to go out, don't go out," said Brewer.
"They've got this cleaned off really well. but the blowing and drifting snow, you just have to be careful. You could be driving and it's clear and then you turn around and it's a messy place you have to be careful," said Brenda Flatter of Arcanum.
And with snow continuing to come down, road conditions are only expected to get worse. The Darke County Sheriff is asking drivers to be extra cautious.
The county engineer says crews will be back out on the roads again around 4 a.m.
DARKE COUNTY -- Right now, in Darke County, blowing and drifting snow are causing many of the roads there to be hazardous. As of Wednesday afternoon, Darke County was under a level one snow advisory. That means drivers should consider all the roadways to be slick and hazardous. The sheriff's office says people should only go out if necessary.
Plows and salt trucks have been out since 3 am Wednesday. They quit about an hour ago to go home and rest. The county engineer says crews will be back out around 4am Thursday.
Drivers say the main roads appear fine, but the side streets and back roads remain slick.
"I just take my time. If they want to pass me they can pass me. I'm not going anywhere. 20-25 miles an hour and that's about it," said Rita Custer of Greenville.
Road conditions are expected to get worse overnight due to blowing and drifting snow. Drivers should be extra cautious Thursday morning.
