Gwinnett County Officials give a County Update

Gwinnett County, GA--  (submitted by Gwinnett County Government)

This has been one of the more significant snow and ice events Gwinnett has experienced in many years in terms of volume of snow and ice on the roads in combination with below-freezing temperatures. Despite the colder temperatures expected over the next few days, the sun, low humidity, and wind are expected to help accelerate the natural evaporation and melting process.

The Gwinnett County Department of Transportation has been responding to weather-related road conditions since the winter storm hit metropolitan Atlanta on Sunday evening. The department has been primarily cooperating with and assisting the County's emergency personnel and crews, which have responded to icy conditions on major thoroughfares and collector streets.

ALL of the on and off ramps have ice in them. Approach them slowly and carefully. If you speed onto an offramp or try to turn suddenly, you will slide and crash.
