Following is the Transporation Department Road Conditions Update as of 10 a.m. Friday:
Slick conditions continue on highways in Cimarron County and Texas County in the Oklahoma Panhandle. As ODOT crews continue to treat highways, drivers should continue to use caution, especially on bridges and overpasses.
During snow and/or ice conditions, motorists need to:
· Check 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.
