TENNESSEE VALLEY – For the most part, roads are in good condition Tuesday morning. The City of Huntsville closed some elevated roads overnight, including  Cecil Ashburn Drive and the Memorial Parkway overpasses, but opened them again after putting down a salt/sand mixture.

Memorial Parkway was open again by 3:45 a.m. as this video shows:

The City of Athens reports roads are in better shape this morning.  Crews from the city and state have worked over night mostly on bridges and overpasses. There are patches of ice on streets this morning that will cause isolated  travel problems. All drivers are urged to use extra caution this morning while traveling.

You may see some icy spots and patches, especially on the shoulders of the road, and parking lots may also have a sheet of ice.

We will continue to update WHNT.com as the morning develops.
