KENT COUNTY, Mich. — The Kent County Road Commission wishes to remind motorists to stay safe while navigating snow-covered roads in the area.

We’re told crews have been working to clear the busiest roads, namely state roads and county primaries, since 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

The road commission advises drivers to travel below the speed limit, leave plenty of rooms for plows, and to avoid distractions while driving.

Snowy conditions have already contributed to several crashes along the roads, as seen here:
