The Carlsbad Public Works Department is currently out salting and blading the roads and will continue to do so during this storm. The roads that have already been salted are Old Cavern, Derrick and Standpipe. We will continue to blade these roads to try and keep them open.
We are also trying to get out to salt and blade Muscatel and Orchard.
The Artesia Public Works Department will be out working on their roads as well.
All weather stations are predicting the snow will continue falling throughout the day, and are advising everyone to stay off the roads and stay home. Please visit http://nmroads.com/ for updates and a list of complete road closures and delays.
