Travel levels were lowered to advisory status in Ripley, Dearborn and Decatur counties on Thursday morning, however, local authorities urge commuters to drive with caution.
A spokesman with the Franklin County Highway Department said, “Be aware if you pass someone in a narrow space, or they stop, let them get by safely.”
“It is our typical winter weather in Franklin County, just drive at a low speed and beware of other vehicles,” she added.
The Ripley County Highway Department continues to clear intersections and county roads. Multiple complaints regarding mailbox damage has been received, according to Steve Schonegg at the Ripley County Highway Garage.
“How heavy the slush and snow [is] hitting the mailboxes as plows went by knocked a lot of them off. We got a lot of calls about that,” Schonegg said.
Drivers will continue to see plow trucks throughout the area through Friday.
