The Marshall Police Department is strongly urging drivers to please use caution. There are several water leaks within the city, the main one being on Grand Ave. at Grove St. With temperatures below freezing, it’s highly likely these leaks will turn to ice making the roadways hazardous. City crews are doing their best to repair the leaks. I do not have a list of where all of the leaks are at this time or which roadways are currently affected, however, with leaks seemingly popping up all over the city, we really need drivers to just slow down and remain vigilant when traveling in these conditions.
