Highway Conditions Alert 2-7-21 as of 8 p.m.

Mike Seals - February 7, 2021 9:18 pm

Isolated areas of freezing drizzle are reported in northeast Oklahoma this evening, and slick conditions could quickly develop on highways and interstates. If travel is necessary overnight, drivers should use caution, especially on bridges and overpasses.

Salt and sand operations are underway in several counties including Osage, Pawnee, Washington, Nowata, Craig, Mayes and Ottawa counties. Crews in surrounding areas will be closely monitoring and will apply materials as needed.

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.

NOTE: Additional advisories will be sent from this office as conditions change.
