Icy Roads

Posted on 30th December 2015 at 09:18

The skies are clearing around the region, and with overnight lows at or below the freezing mark, that’s led to some ice forming on area roadways. The Weather Service issued an alert around 5:20 am, warning of fog and freezing fog in Cowlitz and Columbia counties. Ice is forming on local roadways, leading to at least two collisions this morning on I-5 near Woodland. It’s also being reported that Highway 30 near Saint Helens is also very slick. You’re advised to back off on your speed, increase following distances, and exercise additional caution on local roads. Bridges, overpasses, underpasses and other wind-sheltered areas could be especially tricky today.
