With another winter storm expected, Bartlesville crews have been working around the clock to treat the roads. Three inches of snow fell in Washington County, and although emergency crews were able to keep the roads pretty clean, there's some slick spots in the neighborhoods.

Crews with the Washington County Emergency Management have cleared all of the main roads in Bartlesville. They tell FOX23, now they are looking for trouble spots, and going out to cover bridges, hills and other areas with sand and salt.

"The street crews did a fabulous job getting resources out there quickly." Kary Cox with Washington County Emergency Management told FOX23. "We got them as clean as they could before the hard freeze started setting in."

Unfortunately for Green County, the weather forecast isn't looking any warmer.

"It's bitter cold," Nicole Hill told FOX23. "Your face freezes when you get out of your car instantly."

With the refreeze expected overnight, officials want to remind drivers, to take things slow when driving to work and school.
