Fulton County crews are asking for the public's assistance with their efforts to de-ice area roads after the winter storm emergency and the subsequent refreezes of area roads. While major roads are reopening, travel on those roads is still not advisable.
"Cold temperatures overnight in the teens were an impediment to county efforts to clear the roads," said Fulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves in a release. "Our crews continue working to make driving conditions safe for motorists, but need time to do so."
Drivers who abandoned vehicles along roadways in South Fulton County may find some of their cars moved to the side of roads, to make way for both work crews and traffic. Fulton County also wants to ensure business and residential entrances are not blocked. If you are unable to locate your vehicle please contact Fulton County authorities using the county's non-emergency number, 404-730-7911.
One area towing company says its biggest vehicle removal focus thus far has been abandoned cars on some of South Fulton County's most traveled roads, including:
- Cascade Road
- Fulton Industrial Boulevard
- South Fulton Parkway
- Camp Creek Parkway
- Boat Rock Road
- New Hope Road
- Butner Road
Once again, due to the prevalence of black ice on the roads, motorists should avoid road travel until conditions improve. Residents can report icy road conditions in unincorporated Fulton County by calling 404-613-3105 or 404-612-4223.
