Some roads closed as snow makes travel difficult across area

CULLMAN — The City of Cullman is closing a string of streets while drivers all over the Cullman area struggle to travel slick roads after a dusting of snow this morning.

Cullman Police Chief Kenny Culpepper vehicles are slipping and sliding all over streets, and police are urging drivers to stay home if at all possible today. The City of Cullman Street Department is closing the following streets: Woodland Street, from Edgwood Drive to U.S. 31, Main Avenue at Drippings Spring Road and Convent Road at the bridge up to Larkwood Drive. Street Superintendent Rick Henry said his department is evaluating road conditions and may close other streets and reopen closed streets if conditions improve.

“Hopefully, the wind will blow and push some of the snow off the roads,” Henry said.

 Culpepper said the city may close Hoehn Drive Northeast in front of Cullman City Primary School.

Alabama State Troopers reported road conditions were fair in Cullman County late Tuesday morning, although they were on the scene of a wreck on Cullman County Road 222.

Cullman County Sheriff Mike Rainey said to use caution while driving on local county roads, but secondary roads, especially because of potential ice.

“The Cold Springs area and County Road 1301 on the other side of the interstate are treacherous,” Rainey said. “We are having some minor wrecks so we ask that the drivers please slow down and give plenty of room between vehicles. What’s out here on the roadways isn’t going to go away; There are definitely slick spots, especially the secondary roads that haven’t been traveled as much. Use caution while you’re traveling.”
