Up to ten inches of snow could fall through Wednesday and Thursday, making New Year's holiday travel treacherous. But the Ashland-based Ohio Department of Transportation District Three is ready, with 110 trucks hitting the roads until the storm ends. Public Information Specialist Joyce Miller says drivers will be working 12-hour shifts, around the clock, even on New Year's Day, until the roads are clear. ODOT has 40,000 tons of salt on hand, so there's no concern about under-treating the snowy roads. And while the trucks are out, stay far enough away from them to let them do their work. Miller reminds you of the slogan "don't crowd the plow" and says the trucks are wide, spray snow and salt, and need room to see other vehicles. The Ohio Department of Transportation has proof to back-up its claims of being ready to take on severe snowstorms. It won a national award this year for snow and ice control.
