Commissioners restrict travel on roads

MARSHALL COUNTY - The Marshall County Board of Commissioners have decided to elevate the travel status from an "Advisory Level" back to a "Watch Level" beginning at 6 p.m. tonight.

Strong winds and blowing snow will make drifting roads a significant issue for travelers by tomorrow morning.

A "Watch Level" travel advisory means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. Only essential travel such as to and from work and in emergency situations is recommended. Emergency action plans should be implemented by schools, businesses, government agencies and other organizations.
