SOUTHEAST OHIO – Mother Nature is expected to deliver a mixed bag of sleet, freezing rain and snow Tuesday night into Wednesday. According to ODOT District 10 in southeastern Ohio, they are prepared to tackle all of it.

Crews are busy Feb. 6,2018 pre-treating the roads and filling trucks with snow and ice fighting material, while managers are keeping a close eye on the forecast and making plans to schedule crews around the clock as needed.

As of Jan. 31, 2018, 35,384 tons of salt had been used in District 10. That compares to 17,138 tons at this time last year.

Drivers are reminded to take it slow in ice and snow and give our crews plenty of room to work. Snow plow trucks travel below the posted speed limit, so please be patient.

ODOT District 10 includes Athens, Gallia, Hocking, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Noble, Vinton and Washington Counties in southeastern Ohio.
