With rain on the roads and sub-freezing temperatures in the forecast, local public works directors are trying to make sure the streets stay safe for drivers.
Meridian public works director Monty Jackson says he is confident the city has enough resources to control road icing.
Throughout the day Jackson met with emergency responders to get the latest information.
"We're monitoring, along with the police department, and we'll respond to whatever needs to be responded tom: said Jackson. "It may come to the point where there is so much ice on them that we can't control it with sand or salt, that we would probably close them."
Jackson says the main concerns are bridges and overpasses, as well as two-lane roads that receive little sunlight.
