The Washtenaw County Road Commission is urging residents not to drive anywhere Wednesday or Thursday, if you don’t have to.

The county is expected to get between 9 and 13 inches of snow over the next two days.

Road Commission spokesperson Emily Kizer says they’ll be ready for it.

“We’ll have trucks on 46 snow routes, and we’re going to be focused on our primary routes during the storm itself. So that’s going to be our freeways, the highways, and then paved primary roads, so paved major roads throughout the county,” Kizer says.

Kizer says that means crews probably won’t start plowing dirt roads or in subdivisions for at least a couple of days.
