A snowplow truck will be named at each of the Ohio Turnpike’s eight maintenance buildings along the 241-mile toll road.

“Motorists should take every precaution to avoid passing the snowplow trucks and allow extra space for the crews to clear the road. Don’t crowd the plow,” said Ferzan Ahmed, executive director of the Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission.

“The safest place to be on the road is behind a snowplow truck.”

More than 5,500 snowplow names were submitted from Oct. 24 to Nov. 20. Ohio Turnpike officials selected the top 50 names for a public vote.

Nearly 1,100 votes were cast from Nov. 21 to Dec. 2.
