As warmer temperatures move into the state, ODOT crews anticipate continued progress in clearing roadways and lessening the number of slick spots.

Drivers who must travel Tuesday morning are urged to plan ahead for extra travel time so they can take it slow. Even in areas of the state with less accumulation, drivers need to remain alert to black ice conditions and use caution on bridges, overpasses and ramps.

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