Localized geographical areas within the county may experience better, or worse, road conditions than those listed in the given advisory. Please monitor weather forecasts and information broadcast over or printed in local media outlets before determining whether to venture out on the roadways. Please do not call the Sheriff’s Office to make general inquires about road conditions since our dispatchers are very busy, particularly during a winter storm. 

Level 1- Roadways are hazardous due to accumulated snow or ice. Drive with caution.

Level 2- Roadways are hazardous due to blowing and drifting snow and/or ice cover. Only those who believe it is necessary to drive should be on the roadways. Contact your employer to determine if you should report to work.

Level 3- Roadways are closed to all non-emergency travel due to extremely hazardous conditions. No one should be on the roadways unless it is absolutely essential to travel. Those operating vehicles on the roadway for non-emergency reasons may be subject to arrest.
