Most city streets are still covered and nearly ALL county roads are still covered and treacherous, especially mountain roads such as Woodmont Drive, Hawk Pride Mountain Road, and Frankfort Road. County crews are diligently working to make main thoroughfares passable.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office reports main roads have reports of some black ice, use caution if you are traveling! The side roads are extremely hazardous! Most of the side roads are still a solid sheet of ice! Watch the bridges and overpasses. The temperatures will climb into the mid 30's today!
With the help of the sunshine most of the day, it will start to melt the ice. Unfortunately, what is left on the roadways will refreeze Friday night!
Limestone County Commission Chairman Collin Daly is reporting that there are dangerous road conditions that still exist in the county. Specifically, in the northwestern portions of the county, the freezing temperatures that came in overnight, have caused refreezing on the roads to continue to make travel dangerous. Chairman Daly expressed, “the safety of our citizens is the most important during this time, and this Travel Advisory will stay in effect until the entire county is safe for travel.”
The TRAVEL ADVISORY for IMPASSABLE ROADS remains in effect for Limestone County due to many roadways and bridges that remain icy. Temperatures falling below freezing overnight and into Friday morning will cause these areas to refreeze.
One extremely dangerous stretch of roadway is on Easter Ferry Rd. between Shoals Creek Rd. and the intersections of Cabbage Rd. and Red Hill Hollow Rd. due to icing on roadway.
Drivers should use extreme caution when traveling, especially in the north and western areas of Limestone County.
Highway 43 and Highway 24 are in pretty good shape with some black ice, according to the Russellville Police Department. All side roads are still solid ice and extremely hazardous.
