Georgia Department of Transportation vehicles are preparing to treat potentially icy roads.

“We can’t wave a magic wand and get all the ice off the road, but we’re doing what we can with the tools we have to improve where we can road conditions,” GDOT spokesperson Natalie Dale said. " So there will be black ice patches tomorrow. That is just the nature of black ice. It’s sneaky.”
