VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich.- Drivers in Van Buren County should expect delays as most secondary roads are down to a single lane.

Several inches of snow are piling up in the area. Sgt. Dan Abbot with the Sheriff’s Department said they’ve responded to more than a dozen weather related crashes since 6 a.m.

Abbot said none of the crashes were serious, which is a good indication that people are taking precautions and driving slowly.

He tells FOX17, that although plow trucks are busy at work, they’re only clearing the main roads.
