Roads Remain Slick Across Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma transportation officials say highways across much of the state remain slick Friday morning.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says many highways are slick and travel is strongly discouraged. OHP says drivers need to be extra cautious on entrance and exit ramps.

"We have been in contact with ODOT throughout the night and are told road crews have been struggling to keep up with the amount of snow which has fallen," said OHP Captain George Brown.

ODOT spokesperson Cole Hackett says the agency continues to apply sand and salt to highways and bridges. Hackett says some areas are more troublesome than others, such as Interstate 40 at I-40, Reno and Lincoln, and elevated bridges across the metro. He says those areas may receive a little extra attention, but crews are working to keep snow routes across the state clear.
