Update on snowy road conditions

Posted: February 8, 2014 - 12:32pm

Mike Winter, assistant fire chief for the Conway Fire Department, said road conditions are beginning to clear, but still urges drivers to use caution.

The CFD has responded to one nonfatal car accident as of last night when snow began to fall at about 5 p.m.

The wreck took place on I40 last night around mile marker 123, Winter said, and no injuries were sustained.

The City of Conway Street Department has been laying sand at busy intersections and on steep hills, Winter said.

Snow is also beginning to clear due to more drivers beginning to venture out on the roads, he said, but he still urges people to take it slow and be careful.

Monday and Tuesday the National Weather Service is showing reports of light snow of up to two to four inches in Northern and Central Arkansas that turns to a wintry mix for Central and Southern Arkansas.

Winter said he doesn’t mind the snow, but it’s the sleet and ice that becomes a concern.

Representatives from Conway Corporation said they didn’t receive a single call about power outages from Friday night’s snow, unlike the hundreds without power during last week’s ice storm.

In the event of a power outage, Conway Corporation advises you to call 501-450-6000.
