State: Many roads impassable

Published 7:47am Wednesday, January 29, 2014

While some counties have closed roads, the state has also deemed portions of roads — including four in Covington County — impassable.

The Alabama Department of Transportation has issued a travel advisory for all state, U.S. and Interstate highways and bridges across the entire state. Road conditions in most parts of Alabama are hazardous, and drivers should avoid travel until conditions improve.

All bridges should be considered icy, and drivers should use extreme caution when crossing bridges.
