Highway Conditions Alert 12-16-20 as of 4 p.m.

Mike Seals - December 16, 2020 4:16 pm

Highway conditions greatly improved throughout the day in western and central Oklahoma, following the latest round of winter weather. At this time, remaining slick areas are only reported on a few highways in northwestern Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Department of Transportation crews in Woods County report slushy conditions on US-64, while snow-packed conditions are reported on US-60 between Fairview and Chester. Other areas in the panhandle and Woodward County have some slick areas which are being treated with salt and sand. Crews will be monitoring for any refreezing in the overnight hours and treating as needed.

View www.okroads.org for a map of statewide current closures and snow plow cameras and www.oktraffic.org to view conditions in the Oklahoma City and Tulsa metros before traveling.

NOTE: This office will provide an update as conditions change.

REMEMBER during snowy and icy conditions, motorists are asked to:

  • Stay about 200 feet behind road clearing equipment; crews need room to maneuver and can engage plowing or spreading materials without notice.
  • Allow extra space between vehicles to provide adequate distance for braking.
  • Be aware of “black ice,” which looks wet on the roadway but is a thin layer of ice.
  • Be patient, plan trips ahead and allow extra time in reaching destinations.
