The first winter storm of the season kept road crews busy much of Monday evening in both the city and county.
Some roads remained slick this morning, and the area remained under a winter weather advisory.
Winchester Public Works Director Pat Clark said his crews began going over all routes at about 6 p.m. Monday, working until 10 p.m. Bridges, overpasses and several steep hills were salted Wednesday in anticipation of icy conditions, which helped motorists as city workers responded to the storm.
“What really caused a lot of problems with this, the temperatures were just so low, when this started hitting. ... These spurts just came pretty quick, and they were pretty strong, and people didn’t have much time to adjust,” Clark said.
Crews were out early today, going over all routes again, Clark said, and most roads seemed to be in good condition.
