Roads improving, but still have bad spots

by Wes Mayer

Less accidents occurred in Coweta County on Wednesday than on Tuesday, but some areas of the roads are still treacherous, according to authorities.

“Roads that had bad spots still have it as they froze overnight,” said Jay Jones, director of Coweta County Emergency Management. “With sunshine some roads will improve — others will refreeze tonight.”

According to Jones, there are not any roads closed in the county, but it probably will not be until the weekend — when the temperatures stay above freezing — that the roads will be back to all clear.

According to Traffic Sgt. Lane Yearta with the Newnan Police Department, Newnan officers handed out less SR-13 reports — reports for personal vehicle accidents. Yearta said there were eight accident reports in the city, but nothing major. “The roads are in much better shape than yesterday,” Lane said, “but still have several frozen portions. If drivers do travel, slow is the way to go.”
