The Georgia Department of Transportation is urging people to stay at home and off the roads Wednesday as they work to clear the roads.
Throughout the morning, GDOT has been alerting drivers on social media to be vigilant and aware of road closings.
We're urging motorists to stay put. Even when the sun comes up it will not cause a significant amount of melting due to temps not rising above freezing today.— Georgia DOT (@GADeptofTrans) January 17, 2018
There have already been a number of car crashes throughout the morning and GDOT urges if you don't have essential traffic to stay off the roads.
