COLUMBUS, Ind. – The winter storm that is blanketing several states is predicted to bring 5 to 7 inches of snow to the Columbus area. The city and county will have snowplow trucks out removing snow and putting down sand and salt on the streets of Columbus and Bartholomew County. In addition, the Indiana Department of Transportation has sent 29 plow trucks to the area and they began patrolling highways last night.
Drivers should accelerate and brake slowly, minimize distractions, and leave extra room between vehicles.
