County’s travel status lowered to ‘advisory’

Bartholomew County Emergency Management has downgraded the county’s travel status to advisory level.

Emergency management director Shannan Hinton said roads have improved Monday, but there are still slick spots on roadways and some are snow-covered.

First responders are advising motorists to use caution and allow extra time for travel.  Temperatures will again remain below freezing overnight before rising into the 40s on Tuesday, Hinton said.

A travel advisory is the lowest level of warning, and means that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation.
