Crews say they are ready as the temps dip to near freezing levels Monday night

A light rain followed by freezing temperatures could cause black ice to form, especially on bridges and overpasses, the county warned in a statement.

“Cobb DOT crews will come in overnight to respond to any reports of icy conditions,” the statement read. “If conditions deteriorate, the delayed opening may be changed.”
