Patches of ice could linger on roads into Friday

Road crews will be monitoring chances of refreeze Thursday night into Friday as temperatures are expected to dip below freezing.

Cole County and Jefferson City public works departments say there could be patches of slippery areas in some areas but that all of their roads have been treated.

“We’re not expecting slick conditions tonight here in Jeff, but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to monitor it to make sure we’re right,” said Britt Smith, with Jefferson City Public Works.

School districts that canceled or delayed classes Thursday are re-evaluating for Friday, and at least one expects to have class times run normally.

Superintendent Matt Davis of Eldon R-I School District said he was happy they called off classes for Thursday, and expects to start school at the normal time Friday. Davis said the district will likely run school buses on snow routes.

Lincoln University in Jefferson City delayed classes Thursday morning, and has no plan to change schedules this evening or Friday morning.

“In addition to the area roads, consideration is also given to the condition of the roads and walkways around campus and our campus crews’ ability to clear and maintain those areas,” said LU spokeswoman Misty Young. “Those decisions to close campus are made when the weather slows or deters those efforts.”
