County roads still deemed impassable today

WINSTON COUNTY - As of Wednesday morning, January 17, all Winston County roads were still deemed impassable, according to the Winston County Commission.

"We are just as anxious for this weather to break as anyone else, but with sub-freezing temperatures this morning and throughout most of the day today, we’re still deeming Winston County Roads impassable for right now,"  Winston County Commissioner for District 1 Rutger Hyche posted on his Facebook page.

Hyche also took the opportunity to remind residents that when the county government deems roads impassable due to icy conditions, this means that if someone other than an emergency vehicle is out on the road and has a wreck, that person's auto insurance may not cover the accident.

Residents are encouraged to remain at home and stay off the roads.
