Drivers beware: It's slick out there

Icy roads continue to make travel slow and slippery for Hastings and the surrounding area.

Inside the city limits, many roads are covered in ice, some with tracks worn through by traffic. Main roads, such as Burlington Avenue, have less ice, but driving remains hazardous.

Stu Mohlman, foreman at Hastings Street Department, said the roads will remain slick until the weather changes.

"The temperatures are just not getting warm enough to melt this," he said.

An on-call person has been sanding down extremely slick spots through the weekend and will continue until Christmas. Mohlman encouraged motorists to watch out for snow removal equipment starting Wednesday as crews head out to clear trouble spots and widen the paths on some roads.
