Snow emergencies declared in Ashland and Washburn, no travel advised in Ashland County

ASHLAND, WI — The Cities of Ashland and Washburn have declared a snow emergency.

Ashland Mayor Deb Lewis says plow drivers have been out since 3:30 a.m. on Thursday, and have been trying to keep the emergency routes open.

However, Lewis says the drivers will need to head home to get sleep, and will resume plowing at midnight.

Washburn city officials say their snow emergency will begin at 12 a.m. Friday, and will end at 6 p.m.

All vehicles must be removed from city streets, alleys and parking lots at this time.

In addition, the Ashland County Sheriff’s Office says no travel is advised in the area at this time.

Authorities say due to low visibility, as well as slick roadways, driving conditions are hazardous.

Everyone is asked to stay off the roads, if possible.
