LAKE COUNTY, Ohio -- Dozens of truck drivers filled up the rest stops along Interstate 90 Monday evening, as lake effect snow blanketed roadways.
ODOT dispatched 76 plow trucks in Lake, Geauga and Cuyahoga Counties. When the temperature drops below 20 degrees, salt alone is not sufficient, so crews mix in a liquid brine.
Most traffic reduced to under 40 miles per hour, but some truck drivers said it wasn't enough.
Many semi drivers opted to pull off the road early and wait until morning.
Like plow trucks, semis need extra room to stop in icy conditions.
