The South Carolina Department of Transportation said interstates running through the Upstate were in fair to good condition early Wednesday morning.

Road crews are focusing on snow and ice removal and treatment on both primary and secondary routes in Greenville, Oconee, Pickens and Spartanburg counties, according to the SCDOT.

In Abbeville, Anderson, Greenwood, Laurens and Newberry counties, priority roads, secondary routes and bridges will continue to be treated with anti-icing and deicing materials and equipment.

Travel is not recommended unless absolutely necessary.

Officials with the SCDOT said road crews will continue working on rotating 12-hour shifts utilizing snow plows and applying salt and other anti-icing materials

Across the state, DOT has 1,386 maintenance employees actively involved in road operations treating roads and have used 10,355 tons of salt and 2,257 tons of sand since prep work for the winter storm began. Additionally, 667,159 gallons of salt brine have been used to help treat and melt the ice.
