Transportation Department updates winter road conditions at 11 a.m.

Team Radio Marketing Group - January 15, 2018 11:43 am

Slick and hazardous conditions are reported on highways in northern portions of the state, stretching from Kay County to Ottawa County and also in Cimarron County in the Panhandle.

Areas in northern Rogers, Mayes and Delaware Counties are also developing slick conditions. Use caution if travel is necessary in these areas.

Oklahoma Department of Transportation crews are treating and plowing roads and bridges in all impacted counties and are also monitoring other areas as conditions continue to change.

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

• Stay at least 150 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.
