ODOT: Snow Crews to Work in Tandem
CLEVELAND — The Ohio Department of Transportation wants you to know it already started to prepare for the winter storm that’s headed our way.
ODOT crews began pretreating the roads Monday night.
Eighty crews will be available Tuesday night in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties and will work around the clock until the snow event ends.
Because the snowfall is expected to be significant, crews will be working together to clear the roads more quickly.
ODOT warned drivers to never try to maneuver between two plows working in tandem. An example of plows working in tandem is provided below.
As always, remember plows drive well below the posted speed limit and take up an entire lane. Other vehicles are safest a few hundred feet behind them.
Be sure to allow extra travel time on Wednesday morning. You can check the conditions by tuning in to Fox 8 News in the Morning or by browsing the traffic page.
