Road Conditions Update Friday Morning

From the Oklahoma Department of Transportation

Highways are slick and hazardous in the Panhandle and northwestern Oklahoma, including the Woodward area, as freezing precipitation continues. Oklahoma Department of Transportation crews are treating highways and bridges in these areas and travel is discouraged.

Slick conditions on bridges are also reported in Blaine, Grant and Kay counties.

If travel is necessary, drivers are urged to use caution, especially on bridges, overpasses and when entering or exiting highways as freezing temperatures may continue causing slick spots to develop on wet roadways. Drivers should stay at least 200 ft. behind road clearing trucks and equipment and not attempt to pass.

Drivers should allow plenty of extra time to reach their destinations. To stay updated, drivers should check local weather conditions before traveling. They can also view interstate and metro area traffic conditions and camera views at www.oktraffic.org and follow @OKDOT on Twitter.

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