Ohio Department of Transportation District 12 serving Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties continues to be fully staffed for overnight lake effect snow bands that could impact motorist’s Friday morning commute.
There are 80 crews on the roads in the tri-county area ready to plow and treat the roadways. District 12 crews are still on 12-hour shifts around the clock. ODOT will have the ability to shift crews where snow bans persist. Pre-treating is not warranted for the approaching snow because there is plenty of residual salt on the roads from salt application throughout this week.
Lake effect snow bands may persist in some areas such as the Snow Belt region of Lake, Geauga and eastern Cuyahoga counties. Motorists should be prepared for conditions to change mile by mile and minute by minute as the snow rolls in this afternoon and continues into Friday.
