Ice on roadway creates traffic problem on State Road 46 West


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — While the flood waters are quickly subsiding throughout Bartholomew County, a new problem has emerged in attempting to get a major thoroughfare on the southwest side of Columbus reopened.

As the result of temperatures falling into the single digits Monday night and early today, a hazardous layer of ice has formed across a section of State Road 46 West, according to the Bartholomew County 911 Emergency Center.

If sunshine and warming temperatures allow the ice to be sufficiently cleared, officials plan to once again divert traffic from both directions of State Road 46 onto the eastbound lanes as soon as possible.

Don't settle for a preview.
