Road salt shortage leaves county on slippery slope

-A A +A
By Damon Lawrence

Roane County had between 60 and 70 tons of road salt remaining on Thursday, according to Road Superintendent Tom Hamby.

That was enough to get through one more snow event, he said.

“After that, I’ll be completely out,” he said.

And snow is in the forecast for today and early next week.

Trying to get more salt has proven difficult.

“I’ve been trying to order it, but where we’ve been buying, the state’s got it all tied up,” Hamby said.
