Temperatures Tuesday climbed into the teens, allowing salt and chemical mixtures on street surfaces to begin melting ice. Road crews took advantage of the day to work on clearing snow and ice packed roadways. Interstates 57 and 64 are showing more clearing, but still slick and partially covered with ice. Motorists are still urged to use extreme caution while traveling.
