Dr. Alan Miller, Superintendent of Haleyville City Schools, stated he has requested assistance with monitoring of road conditions from the Haleyville Police Department throughout the night. Dr. Miller stated no delays are expected for Haleyville at this time since conditions are not expected to be hazardous in the area. However, if the HPD finds unsafe roadway conditions, an alternative decision will be made Tuesday morning. Bear Creek Police Chief Shane Whitten also stated his officer will patrol the Bear Creek area as the weather moves into the area and will report hazardous conditions when/if they are found.
Check back often for updates on any school, business, or road closures and/or issues related to the winter weather.
