ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The roads are wet from Friday's snowfall and that water could turn to ice overnight.

"The temperature is hovering right around freezing," said Phil Roberson, Albany Public Works Director.

Albany Public Works crews were hard at work.

"We've sanded all the bridges over the bypass so far, and it appears to be okay," said Roberson.

As temperatures drop, driving brings new concerns.

"This water is going to start freezing and create black ice, it's going to be a dangerous situation," said Sgt. Lee Reynolds, Dougherty Co. Police Department.

Law enforcers urge caution when driving especially over bridges.

"Be very cautions crossing bridges, the wind that goes over and under them at the same time will cause the bridges to freeze," said Reynolds.

Public works has enough sand on hand, but say the key is monitoring the bridges and sanding them at the right time.
