Houston County 911 operators warn of icy patches on local roads where automated sprinkler systems have been operating in sub-freezing temperatures.
Sgt. Jim Adams said motorists should use caution on westbound lanes of Watson Boulevard near North Houston Road where crews have been out putting sand on the icy spots near the Walgreens drug store.
The intersection of Ga. 247 and Ga. 96 is also slick in the northbound lanes next to the Flash Foods but had not been sanded as of 4:30 a.m., Adams said.
Temperatures are expected to be below freezing until after 10 a.m. today.
