From icy roads to sidewalks covered in snow, all day on Tuesday - road crews across northwest Georgia have been busy at work, clearing roads to keep drivers safe.
Tuesday, our crews couldn't make it up Fort Mountain in Murray County due to extremely icy conditions.
Mike Ennis got his company truck stuck on Highway 76.
"I had to drive sideways going up the road and straightened out once I got around the corner, but at some point, I did go off the road, and this truck was stuck there for three hours," says Mike Ennis.
Alora Anthony and her husband Chris don't travel down Highway 76 usually, but they know how dangerous it can be - especially in the snow.
"We get a lot of motorcycle accidents. There are no guard rails going up and it's really curvy- so they like to go fast, but doing the winter time, it can be pretty icy," said Alora.
"They get to going to fast and whenever they get to sliding around, they hit the breaks and spin out," said Chris.
All 30 Murray County public work employees are on standby. They've got tons of salt and trucks ready for the chance of more wintry weather.
"Now we're getting the equipment ready and pretreating some of the roads and bridges just to ensure that they're going to passable," says Murray County commissioner Brittany Pittman.
Murray county sheriff Gary Langford says they've worked fifteen wrecks as of 3:30 pm Tuesday.
No word on how long Highway 76 will be closed.
