The Ohio Department of Transportation said that about 200 ODOT plows are on duty treating interstates, state and U.S. routes, ramps and bridges.

ODOT crews will remain on duty through the evening salting and plowing to keep drivers safe. A new shift of plow drivers will come in between 11pm and midnight.

They ask that drivers who are out should drive slow and give road crews plenty of room to work.
