Callers to NewsLincolnCounty.com suggest people NOT drive to the valley tonight due to snow covered roadways between Newport and about 10 miles beyond Toledo. Some have said they can’t even find the road due to snow covering everything.
In the valley, there are more rollover accidents than emergency responders can immediately get to. The valley is a big sheet of ice on the roadways. Maximum speeds of 20 to 25 mph are recommended except on I-5…but even then there are areas of black ice on bridges that make driving deadly.
Highway 18 is just as bad with black ice. Highway 34 is likely to be in the same boat.
