Drivers Warned of Black Ice Danger

Posted: Updated:

Road conditions across northeastern Oklahoma are improving, but drivers are being urged to watch for black ice.

Some isolated slick areas remain on the highways and are being treated as needed, according to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

With temperatures expected to plunge overnight, drivers should be alert for black ice conditions to quickly develop and to use caution, especially on bridges and overpasses.

Black ice is when areas still appear wet or pooled on the roadway, but it is actually a thin layer of ice and can be deceiving.

Potential for black ice will likely exist into the morning hours. Drivers should remain cautious and drive for conditions. Crews will continue treating those spots as well.
