ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

It is another freezing night in south Georgia, that means if there's any moisture on roads or bridges, it could cause trouble. Albany Public works crews say they're ready to go back out tonight if needed, but they don't expect to have to put out any more sand. Albany didn't experience anymore precipitation Wednesday night, so the roads are dry. Public works has plenty of sand. They bought about 300 tons of it.  They started spreading it on bridges about 1 AM Wednesday morning and used about half their supply of sand. They say crews handled the winter storm well and worked efficiently.

"Yeah I mean it's a change of pace, something we don't get to do too often, our guys we got our good at it, they do the best we can," said Chris Dollar, General Supervisor, Albany Public Works.

Police on patrol Wednesday night will be looking for icing problems. 

Even though, they're not expecting any issues, public works officials say icing could occur in a few scattered spots, so they urge drivers to drive slowly Wednesday night and in the morning.        Remember, a lot of schools are closed tomorrow, including Douhgerty County Schools.
