As snow fell Sunday night, workers for the Ohio Department of Transportation were out treating the roads.
“If it’s coming down, we’ll be out there on the road,” said Charles Slone, an ODOT transportation manager.
Slone told 10TV they deployed 47 trucks to cover areas including I-270, I-71 from county line to county line, all of I-670, portions of SR-315 and I-70 from county line to county line.
Crews will work throughout the night, he said.
“It could be up to 4 a.m. this morning… A lot of it just depends on when the snow pushes out and when the roads start drying out for us,” Slone said.
The biggest areas drivers should use caution on bridges and overpasses, he added.
“Bridges and overpasses will freeze way before the pavements do so they usually run around 2-3 degrees colder than the pavement,” Slone said.
While ODOT crews would be out treating the roads regardless of the holiday weekend, Slone asks drivers keep one thing in mind.
“It’s the holidays,” Slone said. “Think of the families at home. Think of the drivers’ families that are at home that are working and just give them room.”
