TULSA - Weather conditions are causing serious problems for drivers Sunday night.
Reports of multiple car accidents on Highway 169 and the Broken Arrow Expressway have kept Tulsa Police and Fire busy. No injuries have been reported.
The eastbound on ramp from U.S. 412 onto the Will Rogers Turnpike was closed around 5:15 p.m. due to a semi and other cars unable to get traction on the roadway. The semi driver was able to use kitty litter to regain traction a driver on the scene tells 2NEWS.
The roadway was cleared, but traffic was at a slow crawl for most of the evening according to a Turnpike report.
Oklahoma Department of Transportation has been sending sand and salt trucks to cover bridges and overpasses.
Drivers are encouraged to take extreme caution tonight and tomorrow as conditions start to change. Temperatures are expected to stay below freezing until late next week.
