EASTERN OHIO – More than 90 Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) crews are battling wind, snow, and frigid temperatures throughout Central Ohio. 

  • Roads are snow covered and high wind is blowing snow and limiting progress 
  • ODOT crews are using beet juice and other liquid deicers in addition to salt to cut through the ice and snow; however, single digit temperatures make it less effective
  • Air and pavement temperatures continue to drop creating very slick roadways
  • Winter weather is expected to continue today and overnight, so ODOT crews will work around the clock plowing and salting interstates, state, and U.S. routes
  • Drivers should avoid travel, if possible. If travel is essential, plan on plenty of extra time to take it slow and give the plows room to work
