Road conditions still hazardous in Attala County

SHARE NOW

Road conditions in Attala County have not improved Thursday and still pose a significant threat to drivers.

Local authorities have reported to several wrecks and traffic delays to Breezy News throughout the morning.

Multiple vehicles have encountered icy spots on the roads and slid into ditches.

An 18-wheeler lost control in Sallis that caused a significant shut down of Hwy 12.

One of the main reasons for accidents is the prevalence of black ice, which is an invisible layer of ice across the road.

It is still advised to stay off the roads if at all possible.

    My thing is why hasn’t Attala county invested in a salt truck? Shutting everything down and staying in the house is not a good resolution in my opinion. This happens literally every year or every other year so why not?

    I’m from Iowa and I think it’s ridiculous yall get snow every winter now and still don’t invest in a salt truck. It can’t be that expensive if yall have trucks that spray for bugs summer time. Ridiculous to advise people to stay in rather and shut the whole town instead of doing the obvious.

    Durant/Holmes Co had their roads ready.
    Kosciusko/Attala Co did not!!! There is no excuse for our area! MDOT did not do their job. Someone should be held accountable.

      I agree! When my husband worked for MDOT back before 2004, they stayed out day and night salting and s***ging roads. He never got to stay home during bad weather. Since he left MDOT in Attala Co. everything has gone downhill!

    You are correct 💯 percent and it’s said that MDOT cut their trees back from over the Hwy and Attala county hasn’t done anything. All they do is ride around and look or they somewhere parked and sleep or on their phone and that’s ridiculous we can’t get the same treatment as all the other counties.

    Y’all be glad we don’t have salt trucks here, you don’t have to worry about 2 or 3 year old rust buckets to drive around in. That’s the main reason dealers from the Midwest go south to buy cars.

    Salt trucks putting down salt is one thing. But be for real folks, most of the people lack EXPERIENCE…they can barely drive in perfect conditions must less iced over roads, black ice, etc. Weather reports give days notices of ice/snow. People have the opportunity to get groceries or run any errands. Can’t you just be happy with a day or 2 off to just sit home drink hot cocoa (with marshmellows) and watch your favorite movies, sleep late, enjoy the quiet..jmo
