CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

ODOT is preparing for the snow and ice storm that is coming through Cleveland this week.

Ohio Department of Transportation District 12 serving Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties is fully staffed for this New Year's Day lake effect snow event. 

Approximately 80 crews are on the roads in the tri-county area plowing and treating roadways.  District 12 crews are on 12-hour shifts around the clock until the conclusion of this event. 

Lake effect snow bands may persist in some areas and motorists should be prepared for conditions to change mile by mile and minute by minute. 

Motorists should ‘KNO B4 U GO' by checking ODOT's website www.Ohgo.com for up-to-date road and weather conditions, along with traffic speeds and traffic cameras.  Leaving early is the key to getting you where you need to go safe and on time. 

Our snowplows travel below the posted speed limit so please be patient and don't crowd the plow.
