McALESTER — Traffic Advisory

Monday, Feb. 3, 2014

Road Conditions Update as of Feb. 3 at 5 a.m.

Crews in southern and eastern portions of the state are reporting slick and hazardous roads and continue to apply salt and sand and plow areas as necessary. Travel is discouraged in these areas.

The Oklahoma City and Tulsa metro areas have some slick spots. Drivers should use extreme caution and leave plenty of time to reach their destination.

During snow and/or ice conditions, motorists need to:

·        Check road conditions before getting out on the roads.

·        Be aware of "black ice," which looks wet on the roadway, but is actually a thin layer of ice.

·        Stay at least 200 feet behind road-clearing equipment; crews need room to maneuver and can engage plowing or spreading materials without notice.

If drivers must travel out of state, they are urged to check area road conditions before heading out.
