Crews Wrap Up Operations Following Winter Storm
Some Crews Still Patrolling Area Routes
Chillicothe (Wednesday, January 16, 2013 – 9 a.m.) – A light number of crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9 continue to patrol the state highway system for snow and ice conditions following last night’s winter storm.
Currently, drivers from Adams, Brown, Highland, Lawrence, Pike, Ross and Scioto counties are reporting routes to be clear and wet, while Jackson County snowplow operators are reporting roads there to be mostly dry.
Although pavement conditions throughout the area are mostly clear and have been treated with salt, routes that are wet are likely to be slick, and ice could still form on pavement cold spots and bridges, which have a colder surface temperature.
As always, ODOT reminds motorists to exercise caution when traveling during inclement weather. Whether it’s rain, ice or snow, roadway conditions will vary from location to location, so drivers need to be prepared, stay alert and pay heed to other motorists.
