The director of Boone County Road and Bridge said road conditions should improve by Saturday.

Crews were working to treat roads on Friday, but Director Greg Edington said he expected crews to be able to go home by Friday night.

Edington said crews would monitor road conditions and would check them early Saturday to determine whether more work will be needed to melt ice. He warned anything that goes untreated for a period of time could be slick Saturday.

Edington said conditions should change around the same time for gravel roads and asphalt roads.

Columbia Public Works will release information about its plans into the weekend on Friday evening.

Spokesman Barry Dalton said warming temperatures should help with the road conditions.

Dalton said crews will monitor conditions overnight.
