Ohio drivers in for long week

Posted: Updated:
GALLIPOLIS, Ohio -

The morning commute will likely be longer than usual for many Ohio drivers on Thursday and Friday.

Officials with the Ohio Department of Transportation are warning motorists of unexpectedly slick patches of road, decreased visibility and high winds well into Thursday morning.

So far, we've had mostly good news for Southeast Ohio drivers, as the most severe weather has happened to the north and west of Columbus.

ODOT's official traffic map shows that there is only one weather-related road closure. - A section of State Route 56, just west of Athens, is closed due to flooding, and may reopen tomorrow.
