“We’ve managed our crews such that we’ll have 24/7 coverage this weekend,” Gary Leaming says, “we’re kind of marshaling some of our forces over to the coast just incase the winds hit there strongly as is forecast so we can clear the roadways.”
If you are hitting the road, drivers are encouraged to check their tires, wipers, and defrosters, and adjust their speed for the conditions. ODOT says speed is a common factor in crashes during inclement weather. On Thursday, they responded to 12 crashes just north of Grants Pass.
