Department of Public Safety updates public on storm aftermath

This is a news release from the Department of Public Safety

The ice from this week's arctic blast should be gone later today. However, even though it seems the worst is over, there is work to be done. We remind motorists to be cautious around work crews cleaning-up, towing disabled vehicles and performing other aftermath duties in the next few days. Motorists should anticipate these situations and drive through the work zones with care, moving as far away from the workers as safety allows. Your safety begins with you.
