Columbia and Boone County crews will treat roads Sunday

Columbia Public Works has called in an 8-person crew to treat priority routes Sunday afternoon as snow continues to fall.

They are working to make sure pretreated road treatments continue to hold.

In the meantime, the department asks that people drive with caution.

Boone County Road and Bridge Director Greg Edington said crews will continue working through the night.

Edington said the snow that fell Sunday afternoon is packed down and the frigid temperatures are making it difficult for crews to treat the roads.

He said there are slick spots across the county and recommends people drive with extreme caution.
