Mississippi Department of Transportation

Oxford spared icy roads

With dozens of schools closing in neighboring north Mississippi counties due to icy roadways and two weather-related deaths reported this morning, Lafayette County was spared the worst of the dangerous wintry mix this morning. Lafayette County Road Manager Jerry Haynie and his road crew took to the roads at 5 this morning checking for icy accumulations on county roads.

The temperature hung around 32 degrees this morning, causing some icy patches to form on local roads, but not enough to cause traffic problems in Oxford and Lafayette County. The Mississippi Department of Transportation noted bridges in Lafayette County were starting to ice over at 7 this morning on its website, wwwgomdot.com. (December 15, 2010, Page 1A)
