The Advisory issued previously reads as follows:

Only emergency vehicles should travel on county roads and bridges until further notice.
Elmore County EMA, in coordination with the Elmore County Highway Department, shall notify the public with a “Resumption of Travel” statement once conditions improve and roads and bridges are deemed passable.
