The conditions in Broken Arrow shifted from sleet to snow, and city crews mobilized to stay ahead of the changing weather.

Broken Arrow city crews told FOX23 that they pretreated the roads early in the day on Thursday and will continue to monitor the roads overnight.

FOX23 crews monitored the area near 145th and 61st streets in Broken Arrow and talked with drivers about what they experienced during rush hour.

Ryan Pitts said, "People are going pretty slow and I've seen a few people in the ditch."

Another driver said, "As long as you take your time it's really not that bad."

The city has stockpiled 1,200 tons of sand and 900 tons of salt to treat the roads.

Stephanie Higgins with the city of Broken Arrow said that crews are currently working 12-hour shifts to clear the roads until the weather event is over.
