ODOT Monitoring Slick Road Conditions Overnight, Early Morning

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma Department of Transportation has crews statewide monitoring road conditions.

ODOT crews are watching road conditions with the increase chance for icy roads.

Chief Meteorologist Jennifer Zeppelin warns of icy conditions for workers heading out in the morning.

Possible ice accumulation between a .10-.25" is expected for Eastern Oklahoma.

There are reports of slick and hazardous road conditions in the Tulsa area, according to ODOT.

The department offers some tips for people having to drive overnight or in the morning:

· Check road conditions before getting out on the roads.

· Stay at least 200 feet behind road-clearing equipment; crews need room to maneuver and can engage plowing or spreading materials without notice.

· Allow extra space between vehicles, so there is adequate distance for braking in wet and icy conditions.

· Be aware of "black ice," which looks wet on the roadway, but is actually a thin layer of ice.

· Please be patient, plan trips ahead and allow extra time to reach destinations
