ODOT crews working 12-hour shifts

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Lake effect snow bands continue to kick up in northeast Ohio. The snow belt remains under a Lake Effect snow warning through the morning.

Deep snow accumulations and blowing and drifting snow will create hazardous driving conditions. Snow squalls will contribute to rapid reductions in visibility.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says it will remain fully staffed around the clock with 80 trucks in Cuyahoga, Lake & Geauga Counties until the snow ends.

According to ODOT, crews have been working 12-hour shifts to keep up the snow.

ODOT says it will continue to monitor the forecast and will shift crews to areas most effected when possible.

According to the National Weather Service, in Lake Effect snow the weather can vary from locally heavy snow in narrow bands to dry weather just a few miles away. If you will be traveling across the region be prepared for difficult travel within the snow bands with heavy snow and blowing and drifting snow.
