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.
KCRC night crews in at 4 p.m.; as snow continues, they'll concentrate on highest-volume roads (State Roads, County Primaries). Day crews to take over Sunday AM. Drive for conditions: Reduce speeds to maintain control, avoid in-car distractions, give plows room to groom. Be safe! https://t.co/jIr17iUku5
