Precipitation, Pavement Conditions Changing In District 9 Region
Freezing Rain Changes To Snow, ODOT Crews Continue Efforts
Chillicothe (Friday, February 5, 9:45 a.m.) -- After early morning rain and freezing rain, snow has moved into parts of the area, and all available crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation District 9 are working to keep the state highway system safe and passable.
While Adams, Brown, Jackson, Lawrence and Scioto counties continue receiving rain and freezing rain, Highland and Ross counties are now receiving snow. Pavement conditions vary from wet and slick in most of the district to lightly snow covered and wet in the northern and western region of the district. Ice is also forming or likely to form on "cold spots" or on bridges and overpasses.
As always, the department reminds motorists to exercise additional caution when traveling during any inclement weather. Conditions change quickly and with little or no warning - from minute to minute and mile to mile, it's important for motorists to be well-prepared and alert.

Remember: Ice and Snow...Take it Slow
