Road crews are out treating interstates and main streets across East Tennessee.

Many secondary and neighborhood roads that have not been treated will be treacherous Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Officials ask that if you do not need to be out on the roads, it's best to stay home.

Knoxville emergency crews, including police and firefighters are working in four-wheel drive vehicles whenever possible. They are only responding to wrecks with injury and that are blocking the roadway.
