Nassau County road crews on standby for slick spots

FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. -- Road crews in Nassau County say they're ready in case slick spots develop on the roads Wednesday night.

"It's just the chance of that freezing rain and sleet mix," said Traci Masau, Interim Director for Nassau County Emergency Operations.

Masau said crews have sand and trucks ready to go in case roads turn slippery. It's something they've been ready for all week.

"I've been communicating with crews for 2 1/2 days now, so they've had time to prepare any equipment they might need," Masau said.

The prep work is a relief for drivers like Steven Miner. He lives in Fernandina Beach, and works an overnight shift.

"I'll probably have to deal with it," he said.

Despite the threat for slick streets, Miner said he's not worried, especially with road crews ready to go at a moments notice.

"It's good to know they're out there, and on call in case we do need them," Miner said.

First Coast News spoke with officials in Baker County. They also have crews on standby for tough travel spots that are called in or spotted by deputies.
