CLEVELAND — The arctic blast that dumped several inches of snow across northeast Ohio is causing some problems for commuters this morning.
As of Tuesday morning, the Ohio Department of Transportation had more than 80 snowplows on the roads in Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties. A spokesperson said staffing would continue at that level until the storm passes.
While the hardest hit areas seem to be in the Snowbelt region, blowing snow is creating a challenge for crews in all of the aforementioned counties.
See below for the latest updates:
- A crash involving two cars and a semi on I-90 westbound near East 55th Street caused backup for a couple hours Tuesday morning. All lanes have been reopened. Police say three people went to the hospital.
- A parking ban is in effect for all streets that are marked with red and white emergency signs, along with all downtown streets.
A snow ban is in effect for the entire city, until further notice.
