Drivers are strongly encouraged be careful and allow extra time on the roads today.
Crews in western, central and Oklahoma City metro areas are seeing some snow accumulation and are out plowing interstates and highways.
Experts are asking drivers to:
· Check road conditions before getting out on the roads.
· Be aware of “black ice,” which looks wet on the roadway but is actually a thin layer of ice.
· Stay at least 200 feet behind road-clearing equipment; crews need room to maneuver and can engage plowing or spreading materials without notice.
To check CURRENT ROAD CONDITIONS, call the Department of Public Safety’s ROAD CONDITIONS HOTLINE at 888-425-2385.
