VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich.- Drivers in Van Buren County should expect delays as most secondary roads are down to a single lane.

Several inches of snow are piling up in the area. Sgt. Dan Abbot with the Sheriff’s Department said they’ve responded to more than a dozen weather related crashes since 6 a.m.

Abbot said none of the crashes were serious, which is a good indication that people are taking precautions and driving slowly.

He tells FOX17, that although plow trucks are busy at work, they’re only clearing the main roads.

    Please visit the Van Buren County Road Commission's Facebook page at They were in fact out plowing all day today including primary, local and subdivision roads. Every road within their jurisdiction was plowed today! I recommend an update to your story. These people work very hard to keep the public informed and don't need negative publicity such as this.
