COLUMBIA - Due to expected snowfall Tuesday, Columbia Public Works are taking precautionary measures on roadways as weather moves in.
Sleet, snow and freezing rain are predicted for the area starting late Tuesday morning and lasting through early Wednesday morning. According to Columbia Public Works, the department is monitoring the weather and preparing a full crew.
