ODOT works round-the-clock to keep roads clear

Posted: Updated:

The Ohio Department of Transportation says its employees are working hard to keep the roads in Northwest Ohio clear.

More than 100 plow trucks are on the road and crews have worked 12-hour shifts for seven days in a row.

Right now ODOT plans on having crews work around the clock through Wednesday.

The focus is on the expressways and state routes. They say they are making headway, but high winds and dropping temperatures are presenting challenges.

Spokesperson Theresa Pollick says they plan to focus on plowing. "The plan is to keep plowing and we won't salt because we're worried about freezing. It's better to drive on the snow than the ice."

ODOT asks that drivers make room for the plows.
