First snow fall affects Friday traffic
County road crews and public safety officials worked throughout the day Friday to keep the roads safe after central Indiana’s first substantial amount of snow fell.
Hendricks County Highway Department Superintendent Curt Higginbotham said he had his crews out early.
“(Crews have been out) since 3 a.m.,” he said. “We’ve got about 22 pieces of (snow removal equipment) out right now.”
He said his crews were working on plowing, salting, and sanding, but the wind has made it difficult.
“Mainly, it’s the wind that’s the problem,” Higginbotham said. “We plow it back and then a short time later it’s kind of drifted over again. It looks like it’s mainly the north-south roads that are drifting. We’ve had some drifts two or three feet tall.”
