All ALDOT-maintained roads are currently all open in the state's north region, which includes the WAAY 31 viewing area. They do warn that icy conditions may develop on these roads and secondary roads, even if they were pre-treated.

Officials are asking drivers to travel below posted speed limits if roads appear icy, and they are asking drivers to avoid getting on roads unless necessary.
