Several Columbus roads still blocked due to icy conditions

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Although the sun is out roads are still blocked in Columbus.

The intersection of Wynnton and 10th Avenue is blocked where there are long sheets of ice under the viaduct.

Roads are also blocked off at Wynnton and Buena Vista from yesterday where you could also see snow and ice on the grounds.

More barricades are set up on JR Allen Parkway where several accidents were reported due to ice still covering part of the on-ramp onto the highway and portions of that roadway as well.

Local police are working to keep people off the expressway, bridges, and, overpasses because it is some of the hardest places for ice to melt. You also may see patches of ice on roads in shaded areas.

Sand trucks were out in some areas helping you gain more traction on your tires. If you're headed out this afternoon still need to take extra precautions and slow down.
