“They’re not friendly, 15 when I came in on 15 was all snow covered you could see the ice under it and you can’t see which lane you’re in but as long as you’re driving slow and being sensible about it,” said Kosciusko County driver Zona Blackburn.

Officials echoed similar sentiments as with road crews working around the clock to keep things clean for travelers those, drivers.

“When we’re dealing with some drifting like we saw more so this morning the roads may be down to a lane and half compared to two lanes we don’t necessarily have a lot of room to navigate to begin with, said Sergeant Christopher Francis the Public Information Officer. “So, make sure that you give us time, being patient and we want to get out of there just as quick as you want to get Safety is our number one concern not only for ourselves but for everybody else.”
