(WJW) — Fifty-five ODOT crews hit the roads on Sunday morning as winter weather arrived in Northeast Ohio.
ODOT tweeted that in the last 24 hours, their plows covered 13,054 miles. That’s equal to 10.5 trips from Cleveland to Miami to watch the Browns play the Dolphins. And they’re still out there.
ODOT reminds drivers to give crews plenty of room to work.
Speeds are reduced on I-90 in Lake County in both directions.
The Cleveland Division of Police reminds motorists to be cautious on roadways and slow down due to icy and snowy conditions. Officers have responded to numerous motor vehicle crashes.
The FOX 8 weather team says bands of lake effect snow are expected to persist Sunday until late afternoon and evening. Snowbelt communities can expect to see 2-4″ of accumulations. See the forecast here.
Outside of the snowbelt communities, residents are seeing sunny skies and cold temps.
