Crews Continue Snow & Ice Clearing Efforts
Remember: Ice and Snow…Take it Slow!
Chillicothe (Wednesday, February 10, 11:45 a.m.) – With flurries, squalls and wind gusts exceeding more than 30 miles per hour today, crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation - District 9 facilities will continue working to clear the state highway system and keep roadways passable.
Although the rate of snow accumulation has diminished since the overnight hours, motorists in the area can expect a variety of pavement conditions and precipitation. Throughout the area, routes vary from clear with a light dusting of snow to mostly snow covered, and precipitation continues to vary between flurries and light snow.
Routes in Highland and Ross counties remain partly to mostly snow covered due to some steady snow and snow squalls. In addition, heavy wind gusts are causing snow to drift across the roads and recover routes that have been cleared; these routes are also likely to be slick and have spot locations of ice.
Adams, Brown, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike and Scioto counties are seeing localized areas of blowing and drifting snow, as well as periodic flurries or light snow. Four-lane and primary two-lane routes in these counties are reported to be lightly to partly snow covered and slick as snow blows and drifts onto the highways.
Remembering that conditions can change from mile to mile and minute to minute, motorists are reminded that in Ice and Snow…Take it Slow!
