As Toledoans prepare to ring in the new year, city crews are preparing for a snowstorm. The StormTrack weather team is predicting a total of 7.5 inches of snow on the ground by Thursday morning, with snowfall beginning overnight Tuesday into Wednesday.
Crews laid a brine solution on roadways Monday, and worked Tuesday to remove the small amount of snow which fell overnight. Plows will be out clearing snow and spreading salt beginning Tuesday evening.
Police say they had already planned extra patrols to catch intoxicated drivers because of the holiday. The snow means they will likely be dealing with weather related accidents as well.
"We are looking at a snow event as well, so that really doubles our efforts, because we know accidents increase when the snow falls, so we will be filling a number of extra units. We will be focusing on mainly impaired drivers, alcohol, speed, and seat belt use is very important to us so we will be looking for those for sure," said Toledo Police Lieutenant Mark King.
Ohio State Highway Patrol and other local law enforcement agencies will also have
extra eyes on the roads, looking for impaired drivers.
crashes are 100 percent preventable," said Sgt. Robert Sellers with OSHP. "It's
a choice somebody makes to get behind the wheel impaired."
Ohio Department of Transportation Officials say plow drivers will start clearing roadways at 12:00 a.m. and work 12 hour shifts.
"What we'll do is just kind of drive to the conditions of
the road, treat if necessary, and in the case when we see heavy accumulation,
is we'll be doing a lot of plow work, as well," said ODOT spokesperson Theresa Pollick.
Crews are expecting wind to play a role in the snow by Thursday, and ODOT asks drivers to be cautious of blowing and drifting.
