Columbia calls in road crews ahead of Sunday winter storm

Two dozen city workers will get to work on Sunday morning ahead of a winter storm that could blanket Mid-Missouri with snow.

The Columbia Public Works Department said in a tweet that a crew of 24 will be called in at 7 a.m. on Sunday.

The crew will monitor travel conditions and pretreat priority routes, according to the department.

Columbia will see hours of snowfall on Sunday and Monday, prompting an ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather Alert Day.

Several emergency responders are advising the public to stay safe around snow and ice. The Missouri Department of Transportation said Saturday that anyone traveling should be cautious on the road.

"If you can avoid it, stay off the roads during tomorrow and Monday's winter weather," MoDOT said in a tweet.
