With forecasters stating it's very likely wintry precipitation will start early on Thursday morning, Columbia Public Works is making preparations for snow and ice management on Columbia's roadways.
We have been monitoring the forecast closely for the past several days when our forecasting service stated there was a potential for winter weather mid-week.
At this point, we are doing the following -
We will post updates via press releases and via our Facebook account at www.FaceBook.com/ColumbiaMissouriPublic Works and our Twitter account @pub_works. The Facebook account will automatically feed our Twitter account throughout the event.
We urge our customers to monitor local forecasts, be prepared for slickness on roadways during the Thursday morning commute and throughout the day on Thursday, allow for extra time and to slow down and buckle up.
We will issue additional updates mid to late afternoon today.
