(BEDFORD) – Lawrence County is now under a red travel advisory.
Red is the highest level of the local travel advisory and means that travel is restricted to emergency workers only.
The Lawrence County Commissioners have declared a Winter Storm Emergency.
The heavy snowfall with blowing and drifting of snow has caused travel to become treacherous and making it difficult for crews to clear area roadways.
Other counties have also moved to red status; Brown, Monroe, Bartholomew, Orange, and Crawford counties
The Indiana Department of Transportation and local crews are making every effort to keep up the fast snow accumulation.
