Roads report – UPDATE 7 p.m.



Do not travel if you do not have to travel. Keep in mind that your 4-wheel drive will not help you with ice. The Vicksburg Daily News is seeing very few cars on the road in the last hour or so. Most businesses are shut down or in the process of shutting down for employee safety.

At the time of this report, all roads are to be considered dangerous and slippery. If you do have to travel, here is the latest info we have on roads throughout Warren County:

All roadways have a coating of ice and should be considered slippery. Any turn in the road or any overpass should be considered dangerous. Slow down.  Leave plenty of room between you and whatever is in front of you.

Culkin Hill Road has been shut down. Use Sherman Avenue.

Indiana Avenue south of Confederate is difficult to get up the hill.

Pemberton at Halls Ferry is difficult to get up the hill.

Highway 27 towards Utica is slippery, not slagged and should be considered dangerous to travel.

The Highway 61 bridge over the Yazoo is slagged and passable at this time.

The Mississippi River bridge over the Mississippi River is slagged and passable at this time.

The I-20 bridges over surface roads and railways are slagged and slippery, but passable.

The ramps off and onto the Interstate are slippery.

The Big Black bridge at 61 South is slagged, slippery and dangerous.

The Big Black bridge on I-20 is slagged, slippery and dangerous.

A singular report just came in that the hill on Fisher Ferry near St. Michael’s has become too slippery to climb.

Roads that traverse a steep incline like the ramp to Culkin Hill Road near Abe’s Tire should be avoided.

We will update this information as it becomes available to us.

If you do not have to travel, please do not travel.

UPDATE: 7:10 p.m.

Fisher Ferry at St. Michaels is being blocked.

Confederate at Halls Ferry is being blocked.
