Watch out for icy roads

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The DOT is urging people to stay off the roads in central and north Georgia overnight.

Some interstates in metro Atlanta will be closed as crews try to clear ice. Officials also urge caution here in south Georgia.

Some roads are still wet. Temperatures will drop to freezing in some places. That could lead to slick spots, especially on bridges.

In Albany, public works crews are on-call in case they need to spread sand on the roads.

Officials were out at 3:00 a.m. Monday monitoring roads, and they'll be watching again through out the night.
