MADISON (WKOW) -- With Dane County and surrounding area's first accumulating snowfall on Sunday, officials want to remind everyone to take your time on the roadways Monday morning.
As of Monday morning around 4:30 a.m. officials say, road conditions in Dane County, Columbia County, and Juneau County are good. However, there are some slick patches on the side roads that everyone should be aware of. Sgt. Jeff Hiel at Dane County Communications says, "The conditions on the roadways are very good." However he advises everyone slow down and leave extra time to stop on the roadways. Some areas to be aware of are bridges, roundabouts, and particularly overpasses, he says. They tend to freeze up faster than other places, and often catch people off guard.
The City of Madison Streets Department officials say on Sunday around 26 crews were out on the main roads. Overnight, 24 crews were out checking the side roads. On Monday morning, crews went over the main roads again between 6:00 and 6:30 a.m. in time for rush hour.
Also, it's a good time to think about having an emergency winter weather survival kit in your vehicle. You should have some water, snack foods, booster cables, and a first aid kit with you, according to Tod Pritchard, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator at Wisconsin Emergency Management. Also, be sure to take your cell phone with you and keep a blanket in the car just in case. For more tips from Wisconsin Emergency Management, click here.
