Kearney Police advising safe driving for icy road conditions

KEARNEY, Neb. – The Kearney Police Department released the following statement regarding current road conditions with freezing drizzle:

“All roadways within the city have been treated with de-icing materials at least once since the onset of freezing drizzle this morning. Current weather conditions are causing roads to quickly refreeze. Please use extreme caution while driving as these weather conditions are predicted to last throughout the day and patchy ice will continue to form.

Ice accumulation on roadways is difficult to combat and will create slick winter driving conditions. City crews will continue spreading de-icing materials. Stay clear of this equipment and be cautious of flying debris from the materials. Please use extreme caution if you must be out in these conditions.”
