Road Conditions at J. Clark Salyer

Muddy RoadApril 11, 2017

The temperatures have been warming up and the snow has mostly melted, which means the roads are a muddy mess and portions of the roadway are under water. We advise visitors to call before making a trip out to drive the Auto Routes to get an update on road conditions. Roads will most likely not be suitable for driving for several more weeks.
