Madison County secondary roads remain snow covered, slick

Schools in Madison County area cancelled for the day

ANDERSON, Ind. — Although highways are in good shape at this hour, secondary roads throughout Madison County remain snow covered and slick, said Sheriff Ron Richardson.

High winds have caused drifting on some east-west roads, and roads that run north and south are still covered with a layer of ice underneath.

School cancellations throughout the county reduced the amount of traffic on county roads, Richardson said.

Although exact numbers on accidents and slideoffs were not yet available, he said motorists seemed to be heeding winter driving tips of slowing down and staying off the brakes.

The late winter storm that dumped several inches of wet, heavy snow over Central Indiana continued to move east overnight where it was threatening the mid-Atlantic states.

Over the next six hours here, temperatures are expected to remain at about 30 degrees with little or no new snowfall expected. Cloudy and windy conditions are expected to continue through the afternoon, however.

Schools in Madison County originally called for a two-hour delay but later cancelled classes for the day. Those schools include Daleville, Madison-Grant, Shenandoah, Alexandria, Anderson, Anderson Christian, Anderson Preparatory Academy, Elwood, Frankton-Lapel, Head Start of Anderson and Elwood, Indiana Christian Academy, Liberty Christian, Pendleton Christian Preschool and Kindergarten, the Excel Center and South Madison Schools.
