MTSU President Sidney McPhee announced that the university will be closed and classes will be canceled again on Wednesday due to hazardous driving conditions and low temperatures.

McPhee took to Twitter Tuesday evening to state that MTSU would be closed for “one more day.” McPhee’s tweet comes after both Rutherford County Schools and Murfreesboro City Schools announced that they would be closed on Wednesday due to similar concerns.

According to reports by the Daily News Journal, Murfreesboro drivers can expect for the roads to stay icy throughout Wednesday due to the snow on the roads melting and refreezing. Temperatures are expected to remain well under freezing throughout Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Offices that were closed on campus Tuesday will remain closed on Wednesday, and employees who believe that they may have trouble driving to the campus are being advised to, once again, contact their supervisors.
