02/24/12 This morning (Thursday, February 23) on the new Pioneer Drive going from Jefferson south to 17 there was almost a horrendous accident. The county needs to salt not only the road past the ”Correctional Center” but also going south to 17. The road was icy with freezing fog this morning. How anyone kept from hitting anything is amazing. We had about 15 cars, the ditch and a train to choose from. I cannot believe that it didn’t turn into the disaster it could’ve. As soon as we went through the intersection there was plenty of blue salt on the road in front of the jail.
