Elkhart County issues snow emergency

Posted:

 

PRESS RELEASE From the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department:
 
As of 6:00pm, the Elkhart County Board of Commissioners declared a
snow emergency for Elkhart County and has officially closed offices
tomorrow. Travel on many of the roadways has become hazardous due to
significant amounts of snowfall, strong winds, freezing temperatures, and
widespread drifting of roads. County agencies are working together to
alleviate the poor road conditions.
 
During this emergency, citizens are asked to cooperate with county
ordinance 2013-153 that mandates that no travel on county roadways is
permitted during the emergency. The only exception to this provision is
for emergency crews and county highway workers carrying out their
official duties.
 
Elkhart County Highway is still making progress on the roadways, and we
are asking that citizens be patient as the roadways are still continuing to
be cleared. Please assist us by staying off the roadways until the
emergency has been lifted.
 
We are in touch with all county officials to monitor the status of the snow
emergency as well as the road conditions. Updates will be sent out as
needed or as conditions change.
