Blowing and Drifting Snow Prompts Road Closures


WINNEBAGO COUNTY (WIFR) -- The Winnebago County Sheriff's Department says drifting snow is so bad more than half a dozen roads are closed... some with snow as high as cars.

The weather is leaving a lot of drivers stranded across the Stateline waiting to be rescued and it's also causing a whole lot of accidents.

Here's a quick look at the list of closures: Latham Road between Rockton and Central Ave is considered impassible.

Cunningham Road just East of Winnebago, Riverside and I-90, parts of Orth Road, Harlem Road by Rock Cut State Park and a lot of other east and west roads are considered dangerous. Snow plows are headed that way, however, were told it's not going to fix the problem for too long.
