Main roads clear in Quincy but lower temps could cause a problem

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Another round of snow this morning left many roads slick and caused several accidents.

Central Services Director Marty Stegeman says many of the main roads in Quincy are clear, however that doesn't mean we're out of the woods yet.

He says he expects it to just keep getting worse as the night goes on.

Stegeman says all 12 of the city's snow plows are out right now.

However, he said this is the type of snow that's extremely hard to deal with because it will melt during the day and then freeze at night, and that's very hard to get off the streets.

"We're looking at snow through 11 o'clock tonight, so it's going to be long it's going to continue to get worse, the more traffic that's out the slower we move, so if you can stay home, I know it's New Years, but stay home," said Stegeman.

With some more snow expected to start falling again tonight another shift of snow plows will start at 7 p.m. and work through the night keeping roads clear especially for traffic headed home after new year's celebrations.
