Updated: Most counties lower travel advisories, slick spots remain

Bartholomew County Emergency Management is reporting that the county’s travel status has been downgraded to a Yellow Advisory Level.

According to the agency, roads have been cleared, although some have snow remaining on them. Sunday’s weather helped to improve conditions across the county. You should continue to use caution as some slick spots may remain over the next few days in some areas.

Brown, Johnson, Shelby, Decatur and Jackson counties are all also still under a yellow travel advisory.

Jennings County remains in the Orange Travel Watch status. That means conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. During a travel watch only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended.
