Most Highway, Major Roads Clear

Posted: Updated:

Crews have cleared most major highways and streets.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation reports road conditions improved today.

Plowing continues in east-central Oklahoma and crews are reporting slick and hazardous conditions in Cherokee and Adair counties. In southeastern Oklahoma, slick and hazardous conditions are also reported in LeFlore, Pittsburg and Bryan counties. Northeastern Oklahoma crews report slick spots. ODOT crews continue to work to clear all lanes of highways and interstates.

Drivers statewide are asked to be cautious of the possibility of refreezing especially on bridges and overpasses as temperatures are expected to drop in the evening and overnight hours.

EMSA has reported 18 motor vehicle accidents since the inclement weather began in Tulsa.

Tips for Driving in Winter Weather

  • 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
