Crews work to clear roads in Jefferson City, Cole County

Cole County Public Works had 26 trucks treating the roads Sunday, according to Director Larry Benz.

Benz said he called his entire team in before the snow started to make sure roads were treated across the county.

The department will have trucks out overnight to give the main crew a chance to rest before the main crew is brought back in around 4 a.m. Monday.

"We'll send the main crew home, bring some guys in, just in case there's an emergency during the night to kinda monitor the roads, and then we'll be back at it hard and heavy first thing in the morning," Benz said.

Crews monitored road conditions and treated the roads throughout the day.

"Once warranted we will bring in our full crew (24 plow driver, 2 loader operators, 6 equipment mechanics, and 4 supervisors)," Smith said in an email around 5:30 on Sunday morning.
