Watch out for Black Ice

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

A warning for you tonight before you head out tomorrow morning.

Driving conditions could be more dangerous than they appear because of black ice.

Workers with the Adams County Highway Department say they have been out working their different routes all day, and they're hopeful everything dried out by nightfall.

Superintendent of Highway Maintenance Stan Reichert says every route has its slick spots.

 "it's hills and it's intersections, and that's going to be the problem areas," he said.

And drivers say they'll be careful, and know what to do if they slide. "You have to try to turn into it, to go with it - not to put on your brakes," said driver Sarah Farha.

Reichert says they have enough salt for the remainder of the week to treat roads as necessary.
