The snow and wind of Winter Storm Euclid might have threatened Jackson County travelers as it raged for the better part of Wednesday, but its effects were not long lived and created few serious issues even for road crews.

“I’d say we have about 90 percent of the roads open,” Warren Martin said Thursday morning.

Martin, superintendent of the Jackson County Highway Department, said county crews started treating roads Christmas Day afternoon.

Working 12-hour shifts, Martin said those workers have been working to clear county roads around the clock since first hitting the roads.

Road conditions improved enough to allow city and county offices to reopen after the one-day reprieve as well as many other offices that were closed Wednesday.

Martin said most county roads will have been cleared by Thursday evening after the crews tackled some trouble spots.
