Snow melted much across Mid-Missouri Tuesday afternoon, helping cleanup efforts. But the new concern is the chance of refreeze overnight and more snow on the way before the Wednesday morning commute. Road crews in Cole and Boone Counties reported light travel on the roadways, something they took advantage of to clear some hard to reach places, such as bridges and railings. MoDot said they will be hauling away snow that accumulates in those places overnight. They have cleared most of the Interstates by early Tuesday evening and were working on lettered routes overnight.They will continue to have full crews out to clean up what’s left of the snow before more snowfall is expected during the overnight hours. In Jefferson City, road crews finished by early evening and kept a light staff overnight to monitor conditions. Britt Smith, director of public works, said they laid salt on the most of the street surfaces to prevent refreeze. But motorists should still watch for slick spots. In Columbia, road crews cleared first and second priority routes by early afternoon and were plowing residential streets by nightfall.
