Cobb County’s DOT, Police, Sheriff, 911, Fire & Emergency Services all have been working through the night to assist in minimizing the impact of the snow and ice. Here is our latest update as of 10 a.m.PHOTO

DOT
Cobb DOT treated all arterial roads during the overnight hours. We are continuing to operate full crews and all spreader trucks with a current focus on CCT routes and smaller secondary roads. CCT is expected to resume local service at noon today. Road conditions will continue to improve as temperatures reach into the 40s and sunshine is expected throughout the day. To report a road hazard please visit www.cobbdot.org, call 770-528-1600 or download the YourGov app from iTunes or Google Play store.

Police
Cobb Police are encouraging motorist to stay off the roads until conditions improve this afternoon. Please drive slowly as many secondary roads remain wet and there may be patches of ice. Drivers that had to abandoned their vehicles due to snow conditions are encouraged to recover them today.

Police have been working with vehicle towing services to relocate a limited number of vehicles that were blocking the road or creating a significant hazard. In most cases vehicles were moved within a few hundred feet of the location they were abandoned. In some cases vehicles had to be removed and taken to an impound yard. Vehicle owners will not be charged if their vehicle was towed at the request of Cobb Police. Information on claiming towed vehicles from impound can be obtained by calling Cobb Police HQ at 770-499-3900 after noon today.

Fire
Fire and Emergency Services resumed normal operations last night reporting that the frequency of emergency calls was returning to normal levels.  They do caution people to move carefully when outside. Crews have responded to multiple fall related injuries resulting in broken bones.
