Crews across the Nashville area spent most of the night and morning working to clear any remaining snow and ice from roadways. 

Although Sunday’s warmer temperatures helped improve conditions for many roads across the area, many side and neighborhood streets remained icy.

Metro Nashville Public Schools was one of many schools systems in Middle Tennessee who remained closed Monday.

Since Friday morning, officials with the Tennessee Highway Patrol said they’ve responded to 1,100 incidents, including 54-injury crashes and one fatality.

Sky 5 flew over Interstate 40 where conditions looked much better than they did over the weekend. Roads were expected to improve the closer you get to the Metro area.

Meanwhile, crews with Metro Public Works have been working throughout the night and morning to clear remaining side streets and secondary routes. 

Some 27 snow plow and salt trucks will be running continuously to make sure roads are safe.

NewsChannel 5 reporter Matthew Torres was in Bellevue Monday morning, where many streets are still icy.

Anyone wishing to report roads that need to be cleared in Davidson County was urged to call help. 615-862-875.
