District 9 Crews Continue To Combat Snow Squalls, Blowing Snow
Chillicothe (Thursday, February 25, 4:00 p.m.) – Although pavement conditions throughout the area are mostly clear, some crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation - District 9’s highway maintenance facilities will continue patrolling and treating the state highway system during the evening hours tonight.
Throughout the district, drivers are reporting primary routes to be dry or clear and wet. However, some roadways continue to be lightly or partially snow covered due to localized snow squalls and blowing snow. In addition, routes that are wet are likely to be slick and may be susceptible to freezing.
While the majority have returned to their respective garages, there will be crews working in Adams, Brown, Highland and Jackson counties during the evening hours to patrol and treat routes as needed; additional crews from these and other District 9 counties will be called out if the need arises.
Motorists are advised to continue exercising additional caution, especially when traveling over pavement that is wet as this may be slick and ice could form quickly. Motorists are also reminded to be cautious when traveling over bridges and overpasses where freezing may occur and over hills and in curves where snow may drift.
