How ODOT crews are preparing for Ohio’s upcoming snowfall
The Toledo area is expected to get 3–5 inches of snow between Monday and Tuesday.
TOLEDO, Ohio — A winter weather advisory is now in effect for all of Northwest Ohio as well as other parts of the state, due to a winter storm that will last through Tuesday.
Ohio Department of Transportation Press Secretary Matt Bruning says ODOT plow crews will apply salt when needed, and garages will be monitoring weather conditions to determine when specific action is appropriate. As of right now, there’s no need to pretreat roads because they’re too warm for snow to build up.
Of course, during this snow event, it’s a good thing to stay informed on where crews are present and what action’s being taken to keep you safe on the roads. All of ODOT’s 12 districts have social media profiles to keep the public informed.
Bruning says that if you can, avoid the roads during the snowstorm, in order to give crews room to work, and for your own safety.
