Light Snow, Ice Keep ODOT On The Move
District 9 Crews Working Through Overnight, Morning Hours
Chillicothe (Thursday, February 3, 2011 - 6:35 a.m.) – Ohio Department of Transportation crews have been working through the overnight hours and are running routes on the state highway system this morning to patrol and treat for snow and ice.
Pavement conditions in Highland, Jackson, Pike and Ross counties vary from partly snow covered and icy to mostly clear and wet with traces of slush or black ice.
Drivers in Adams and Brown counties are reporting routes to be clear and wet, but also very slick.
Crews in all counties continue patrolling, plowing and treating when and where needed; however, motorists are reminded of the need for additional caution. Roadways that are clear and wet are likely to be slick and ice may be present or can form without warning, particularly on bridges and overpasses.
Remember: In ice and snow, take it slow!
