Officials stress caution on roads on New Year's Eve

Dec 31, 2012

The Columbia Public Works department says, based on local forecasts for winter weather, the department decided to start pre-treating roadways this morning.

In a press release, the department said it will be monitoring roadways and will call in additional crews if necessary, and asks drivers with New Years Eve plans to closely monitor conditions throughout the day. Meantime, the Missouri Department of Transportation has a live updated traveler information map on its website that shows road conditions throughout the state.
