Icy Roads and Bad Weather Basics

Ice on the ground!  Go slow, be safe and sound!

Good day to you all in Sudden Valley.  This morning, I saw ice on the ground heading into work and caught some black ice with my tires twice within the last week.  Thought we’d take a moment to share some Bad Weather Basics (where to find info, how we respond to snow/ice events, bus schedule changes, etc.).  Please click here for the SVCA Bad Weather Basics.

Please remember, even though we’re experiencing good weather (knock on wood), it’s below freezing at night and lots of fog settles in our area.  This makes for very icy roads in the morning.  Please include extra time in your commute and remember to allow for longer required distances to break to a stop or slow for a turn.  More useful information is in our Bad Weather Basics.

Traffic Update

When?                 11/29/17 (from 1-3 hours between 8am & 4pm)

Where?                 Near 10 Rocky Ridge

What?                  Contractors will be using large trucks with trusses to move supplies for a new home in the area.  Please, follow instructions of flaggers and posted signs.

We appreciate your patience as crews work to build a new home for a member.
