ODOT District One crews work to clear highways

Posted: Updated:

ODOT continues to work on highway conditions throughout Northwest Ohio.  Ohio Department of Transportation District 1 includes Allen, Defiance, Hancock, Hardin, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert and Wyandot Counties.

ODOT district 1 tells 13abc that 98 crews are operating in the eight county district.  Snow and ice conditions are reported throughout Northwest Ohio including blowing snow.  Winds will remain a factor throughout the day.

Snow is tapering off and crews are applying salt while they plow.  Tonight, colder temperatures are expected which may create icy conditions on pavement. 

In a typical winter, ODOR uses 35,000 tons of salt to control snow in the eight-county region of district 1.  So far this season, more than 45,000 tons of salt has been used.
