Driving Over the Icy Camellia Bridge at 5 AM, January 17, 2018
Coming in to work this morning, we (my husband Dave insisted on driving) decided to try crossing the Vermilion River via the Camellia Bridge between Kaliste Saloom and Johnston St. The road over the Vermilion River felt a little sloshy but not too slippery. We did see somebody stuck on the road divider at Camellia and Johnston by Classic Auto Spa, though. My guess would be that the driver may have taken the turn off Johnston onto Camellia a little too fast for the conditions. If you must get out before this all melts, please slow down, give yourself extra time, leave plenty of space between your car and other vehicles, and pay very close attention.
