Changes in the weather over the last few weeks have hit area roads particularly hard.
Pulaski County instituted a travel advisory last week due to the depth of the frost line, otherwise known as the depth to which the ground is frozen. According to Pulaski County Highway Superintendent Larry Brady, the travel advisory was put into effect due to the weather’s influence on the roadways.
Brady says the conditions of Pulaski County’s roads have been deteriorating quickly with the spring thaw. Temperatures are anticipated to stay relatively cool in the area over the next couple of days, according to the National Weather Service.
The Pulaski County Highway Department advises that caution be used while traveling throughout the county. Neighboring counties have been using time repairing roadways suffering from potholes.
