Benton County Prepares for Potential Wintry Weather


The Benton County Road Department is gearing up to make sure its equipment is ready to go if any winter weather pops up over the next 48 hours.

Benton County Communications Director Channing Barker said although Monday is a holiday for the county, road crews will be ready to go at a moments notice.

Crews have already started preparing a salt brine solution for the roads.

“We have been preparing as far as watching the radar and also putting teams into place, whether you are going to be on standby for the weekend or you’re on call, we have those strategies in place far ahead of this week,” Barker said. 

Barker said crews are also prepared to use sand on roads and she encourages people to keep a close eye on the weather.
