ALLEGAN COUNTY, Mich. — Traffic was slowed in several counties across West Michigan Thursday evening.

FOX 17 spent hours driving on slick spots in Barry and Allegan Counties.

Dispatchers said the areas with the most reported accidents and slide-offs were in Allegan and Van Buren Counties.  They said that Muskegon and Calhoun Counties also had a few incidents of slide-offs on slick roadways.

Plows stayed busy on US-131, removing snow and adding a salt/ sand mixture to the roadway.

If your vehicle does slide-off the roadway, a reminder from the Michigan State Police is to stay inside your vehicle while waiting for emergency crews to arrive.
