A District 2 county vehicle works to spread sand on a snow-packed Dwight Mission Rd.
Wednesday, January 17, 2024 - Sequoyah County commissioners and their crews have spent countless hours fighting below-freezing temperatures to improve road conditions where you live.
District 2 Commissioner Beau Burlison provided a statement on behalf of all three districts.
“We have had crews out since Sunday working to sand and clear roads countywide. The extremely low temperatures have provided us with some challenges for both our equipment and materials. We understand that this cold snap has been difficult for everyone; however, with today's highs expected to be above freezing, we should begin to see conditions improve,” Burlison stated. “We want to extend a big thank you to all our teams who have come in and worked tirelessly through these rough conditions.
Thank you for your patience and please continue to travel with care.”
In addition, Sequoyah County Emergency Management Director Jonathan Teague has spent the past few days making his way through the county to provide updates on current road conditions.
