ODOT Prepared for Past Weekend’s Slick Conditions

The Ohio Department of Transportation says this Sunday’s icy weather didn’t catch them off-guard. Our local district had a meeting last Friday to go over the forecast and prepare crews for the slick conditions.

ODOT spokeswoman Kate Stickle says it looks as though Knox and Coshocton counties had the worst icing. That prompted crews to put more salt on US routes, state routes, and the interstates.

Stickle says it can be difficult for drivers to decipher between rain and ice. So, she suggests if motorists know that there’s a chance for wintry weather, take it slow.
