ODOT District Two Winter Weather Update 4:30pm
BOWLING GREEN (Thursday, January 8, 2015) – The following is an update from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District Two:
Drivers of snow plows across Northwest Ohio are gearing up for tonight’s expected light snowfall.
ODOT crews have been on twelve hour shifts since Saturday morning, January 3, clearing ice and snow in Fulton, Henry, Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, Williams and Wood Counties.
With salt and liquid treatments, like brine and beet juice already on state and federal routes, crews have been focusing their efforts on snow drifts as well as clearing shoulders, drives and crossovers to prepare for additional snow tonight.
Winter conditions will return tonight following the evening commute. With one to three inches of snow expected overnight, ODOT crews will continue to treat roadways, but the biggest challenge will be blowing and drifting snow, especially in the rural areas. This is likely to continue through the Friday morning commute.
- Clear windows and lights so that you are visible to other drivers.
- Be mindful of blowing and drifting, especially in rural areas
- Travel at reduced speeds
- Allow extra time to get to your destination
