Road Conditions Update 11-28-15 – 5:30 a.m.
Slick conditions on highways in central and western Oklahoma

Oklahoma Department of Transportation crews continue to treat highways and bridges with salt and sand in central Oklahoma. Highways are slick and hazardous in the Oklahoma City metro area and drivers should use extra caution, especially on bridges and overpasses, which freeze before roadways.

Crews are monitoring conditions and treating bridges as necessary south and east of Oklahoma City. Roadways are wet with slick spots on bridges.

Highways remain slick and hazardous in the Panhandle and northwestern Oklahoma, including Woodward and surrounding areas, and unnecessary travel is discouraged. Highways are slick and hazardous in southwestern and western Oklahoma, including the I-40 corridor.

In northeastern Oklahoma, highways are wet and crews are monitoring conditions.

If travel is necessary, drivers are urged to use extra caution, especially on bridges, overpasses and when entering or exiting highways as freezing temperatures may cause slick spots to develop on wet roadways. Drivers should stay at least 200 ft. behind road clearing trucks and equipment and not attempt to pass.

Drivers should allow plenty of extra time to reach their destinations. To stay updated, drivers should check local weather conditions before traveling and can view interstate and metro area traffic conditions and camera views at www.oktraffic.org and follow @OKDOT on Twitter.

If drivers must travel out of state they are urged to check area road conditions before heading out.
