ODOT Responding to Some Slick Spots on Highways

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation crews are responding to slick or snow covered areas, following Saturday's icy winter weather.

Cherokee, Muskogee and McIntosh counties have reported snow covered roadways and slicks spots on highways in Wagoner and Okmulgee counties.

Drivers should remain alert and cautious of black ice conditions on roadways.

ODOT asks motorists to:

·  Check road conditions before getting out on the roads. 
·  Stay at least 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, so there is adequate distance for braking in wet and icy conditions. 
·  Be aware of "black ice," which looks wet on the roadway, but is actually a thin layer of ice. 
·  Please be patient, plan trips ahead and allow extra time to reach destinations.

Before hitting the road, call the Department of Public Safety's road conditions hotline at 888-425-2385.
