Road crews catching up on overnight snowfall

Posted: Updated:

Plows and salt trucks are heading out on the roads this morning to catch up with the snow that fell overnight.

The conditions of the roads on your morning commute will depend on how soon state, county, and local road departments can get plows and salt trucks on the road.

A wave of snow that dumped from one to four additional inches moved out in the early morning hours is giving crews a chance to catch up on clearing roads.

As of 3:30 am, many roads were still snow covered and slippery.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says it has the following number of trucks on the roads for plowing and salting:

Mahoning County 20

Trumbull County 20

Columbiana County 18
