CLEVELAND, Ohio — Spring may have officially sprung, but our winter weather just doesn’t want to leave.

With the potential for several inches of snow to fall across Northeast Ohio, ODOT released plans early on Saturday to treat and clear the roads.

Crews were out in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties all day to keep the roads clear and passable. They plan to work around the clock until the event is over.

ODOT wants to remind drivers to give their plows plenty of room to work. The safest place is always a few hundred feet behind the plow.

The city of Cleveland was also ready.

Maureen Harper, city spokesperson, said the city will have 26 crews out tonight, and 15,000 tons of salt is available to help clear the roads.

As the snow piled up, parking bans went into effect for many parts of Northeast Ohio.
