CLEVELAND -- The Ohio Department Transportation (ODOT) on Saturday outlined its plan for the weekend as predicted lake-effect snow approaches Northeast Ohio.

At noon, snowplow drivers hit the roads in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties to combat the snow as it moves into the area. In fact, ODOT says 80 snowplows will work around the clock until the storm moves out, patrolling, salting and plowing as necessary.

If you plan to travel on I-90 in Lake County, between State Route 44 and State Route 528, be aware that speed limits have been reduced in that area  because of weather and road conditions.
