Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Officials continue to discourage travel as crews work to clear roadways, which remain hazardous due to the heavy snow fall and below freezing temperatures. The National Weather Service in Nashville issued a Travelers Advisory for the area, and they expect travel problems will continue across Middle Tennessee until at least Noon on Sunday.

Public Works crews with the City of Mt. Juliet, Wilson County, & TDOT continue to work hard in their efforts to clear the roads.

Since 6:00 a.m. Friday morning, Mt. Juliet Police responded to 3 injury crashes, 8 non-injury crashes, and dealt with 55 motorist assist incidents where one or more vehicles were stuck. Roadways with the most incidents are in areas with an incline or hill. The last reported crash was at 5:20 p.m. yesterday, where a motorist spun out and struck the wall on the Interstate. Police officers continue to assist motorists who are becoming stuck. Traffic is much less than it was on Friday, which has resulted in less call volume at the current moment.

During this impacting winter weather, it is important to ensure neighbors, friends, and loved ones are okay, especially the elderly and those with any special needs. If contact cannot be with neighbor, friend, or loved one, the communications center can be notified at (615) 754-2550. Once notified, a police officer will respond to conduct a welfare check.
