The Ohio Department of Transportation has crews on the road already in preparation for a winter storm expected to bring heavy snow across Northeast Ohio.

ODOT's District 12 covers Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties.

ODOT says it will be fully staffed around-the-clock with 80 crews to keep roads clear.

Heavy snow accumulations are predicted from the storm. ODOT says the heavy snowfall may necessitate plows working in tandem to clear roads faster.

Drivers should give plow drivers extra room and not attempt to maneuver between trucks working in tandem.
