Road conditions changing, not for the better

March 3, 2014

Road conditions not quickly improving

March 3, 2014

The LeFlore County Sheriff's Department is reporting roads throughout the county remain slick and hazardous. Motorists are encouraged to remain home unless it is an emergency.
Since 9 a.m. today [March 3] several vehicles have slid off the road and become stuck in the ditch.
Poteau police have had to help several drivers in the last few hours.
Although the sun is shining, temperatures are not expected to get above freezing so ice-free roads are not expected until tomorrow.
