Johnson County responds to winter storm

Snow on the ground in an open courtyard next to the County Administration Building

Johnson County Government continues today to respond to the winter storm that started overnight between 3-4 a.m., depending on the location in the county. Efforts include road and walkway treatment. Departments report cancellations and delays due to the ongoing snowfall.

Public Works crews started 12-hour shifts overnight on county roads. Cities within Johnson County address their own roads. At 6:30 a.m., this morning, crews observed between ½-1 inch of snow on the roads. Day shift crews continue to plow the streets. The first priority is main lines and thoroughfares of unincorporated roadways. The 12-hour shifts will continue until streets are cleared. Residents are encouraged to avoid driving during the storm. Reduced traffic allows Public Works to move more quickly, helping everyone stay safe.

Johnson County Facilities grounds crews are addressing snow removal at Johnson County buildings.

Johnson County Emergency Management, a division of Johnson County Emergency Services, is working closely with the National Weather Service to stay up to date on conditions. Emergency Management is meeting regularly with Johnson County leaders to keep them informed as they make decisions about weather-related impacts to programs, services and facilities.
