Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger announced that crews from the Shelby County Road Department will be out in force on Monday,  pre-treating the county roadways with de-icing material in preparation of the Canadian Clipper System that is due to arrive in the Ohio Valley on Tuesday.

With the possibility of the frigid cold temperatures and mild-to-moderate snow accumulations, Shelby County Road Supervisor Carl Henry will get a jump start in anticipation of the potentially hazardous weather conditions.

Rothenburger urges all motorists to be aware of the de-icing operations that will be taking place over the next 24 hours and to also be prepared for traffic slow-downs as a result of the salt brine being applied to roadways.
