Tennessee Highway Patrol asking people to stay off the roads during icy conditions

(THP, Dover, TN)

Tennessee Highway Patrol is asking people to stay off the roads as freezing rain, sleet and snow is expected Friday.

THP said the roads could get hazardous, and if you don't have to leave your home, don't.

"Please stay in and help us keep the roads clear," THP said in a tweet. "More cars on the roads, equals more crashes. That is not good for anyone."

If you need Hwy assistance call the THP at *847 (*THP). and a Trooper will be dispatched to your location.

Meanwhile, TDOT has more than 270 crews out treating the roads. Their cleaning prioity is interstates, major state routes then secondary state routes.
