Snow drifted rural roads create unsafe transportation for College Community Schools

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KWWL) — Last night and earlier today, the City of Cedar Rapids issued an advisory telling drivers to avoid roads on the SW side of town, due to unsafe driving conditions.

Today crews were back out on rural roads near the SW side of town, clearing out drifted snow banks and stranded cars.

“Some of our roads are good, some of our roads are mediocre, some of our roads we’re told not to go close to,” said College Community School’s Superintendent, Dough Wheeler. The district deciding to cancel classes today, after rural roads took a beating in last night’s 49 mph winds.
