Ohio DOT Snow-Fighting Crews Ready for This Weekend

Winter Driving on I-75 | I-75 Exit Guide

The Ohio Department of Transportation is ready for the predicted snow this weekend with crews scheduled to begin plowing as soon as necessary.

District 8 covers over 3,800 lane miles of State Routes, U.S. Routes and Interstates in seven counties under its responsibility in southwest Ohio. There is nearly 60,000 tons of salt on hand to be used during snow and ice events in Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Green, Hamilton, Preble and Warren counties. District 8 has 160 trucks and more than 300 trained drivers ready.

“Our ‘snow-fighters’ work hard to clear snow and ice, but we need the public’s help as well,” said ODOT District 8 Deputy Director Tammy Campbell. “Please give our drivers plenty of room to work. Plow trucks typically drive much slower than other traffic and can propel large amounts of heavy snow, so be extra alert when driving near them.”
