CINCINNATI — Road crews were busy laying down salt and plowing snow from tri-state streets Sunday night. With anywhere from one to three inches of snow predicted to fall in area communities and warmer air switching the precipitation to rain, the roads could be slick and slushy for Monday's rush hour.

As of 10:15, The Ohio Department of Transportation had 434 crews out statewide plowing and treating roads. Those crews will be working throughout the night to keep streets safe for drivers.

"One thing we want to stress to everyone is that even though the snow may not be sticking everywhere on the ground, you still need to be very cautious when you're driving," Triple-A spokesperson Jennifer Moore said.

Triple-A also recommends drivers stay alert and minimize distractions, drive carefully and leave plenty of space for crews working on the roads.
