Oklahoma Department of Transportation warns of black ice and slick spots on roadways

Posted on Monday, December 14th, 2020 at 4:11 am    

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – The Oklahoma Department of Transportation said that Sunday’s snowstorm has left roadways in central and eastern Oklahoma with slick spots and black ice, and that motorists should drive with extra caution, reports KFOR.

Officials say crews are currently working in central and eastern counties to treat the slick spots and black ice, which formed overnight following the snowstorm on many wet and elevated surfaces. Further refreezing is expected due to the low temperatures.

There’s remaining concern for slick areas in western Oklahoma, although roadway conditions generally improved overnight. In south-central Oklahoma, crews will be monitoring roadways for refreezing and needed treatment.

DoT officials urge motorists to drive slow, expect longer morning travel times, and watch for changing road conditions.
