Snow Alert Update

December 17, 2016 4:41 PM


INFORMATION OF INCIDENT  
12/17/2016 - 9:08 AM

Address:
1250 McKenna Blvd. (Elver Park)
Details:  City Parks employee was plowing snow in the Elver Park parking lot. Some children exited a vehicle in the parking lot. The plow driver did not see the children as he was backing, as a result the truck collided with the children.

Snow Plowing Updates
by Chris Kelley, Streets Superintenden
posted December 17, 2016 2:05 PM
A snow emergency has been declared yet again. This snow emergency will remain in effect until 7am December 19. Note those on the roads will experience slick spots, and the dry snow with blustery conditions will make for very challenging and dangerous driving conditions, particularly in outlying areas - so please exercise great caution if you elect to be on the roads tonight.

The Streets Division along with contractors will begin plowing all city streets when the final wave of snow from this storm stops falling. We current anticipate plowing operations to commence around 9pm Saturday evening. Once plowing begins, our combined plow force will be approximately 170 pieces of equipment, and it will take 10 to 12 hours from the start of the plowing for all city streets to be cleared.

Temperatures have remained above 15 degrees throughout the storm, meaning the Streets Division was able to apply salt to our salt routes and keep these major thoroughfares of Madison in decent winter driving condition. Those on the roads must remain cautious. Since there is active snowing, work performed by salt routes crews will be covered until another loop through the routes can be completed. 

Plus, this dry, sugary snow will easily blow off buildings and across open areas, which will also cover the roads until a salt route operator can make another pass. Slippery spots will persist, particularly in residential areas not on our salt routes. Outlying areas of Madison may experience limited visibility as the snow blows and drifts across the roads - so please use caution and avoid traveling if possible.

While residential streets are being cleared during the plowing operation later tonight, temporary windrows may impede access to side streets and bike lanes and paths until they can be cleared later. As always with plowing operations, residents should be prepared for the possibility of snow in their driveway aprons after their roads have been cleared. When we plow back to the curb, snow naturally falls off the plow and into the cavity along the curb created by driveway aprons.

After the storm, temperatures are expected to freefall below 15 degrees and stay below 15 until later in the week. When temperatures are below 15 degrees, the Streets Division cannot apply salt and will only use sand with traction. This will likely impact roadway users both Sunday and Monday, so please make good choices and remain cautious on your commutes.

And finally, since this is a snow emergency, try to remove your cars from the street tonight, or at least abide by alternate side parking rules if you must park on the street. This applies to everyone in the city of Madison, including the isthmus. Following alternate side parking helps keep the roads open for everyone to use safely throughout the winter so our plows can clear one side of the street tonight, and then come back tomorrow night and clear the other side. If you must park on the street tonight, park on the EVEN house numbered side of the street (so your car will be on the even side between the hours of 1am and 7am on 12/18) and then ODD numbered side tomorrow (so your vehicle is on the ODD side of the street between the hours of 1am and 7am on 12/19).

Streets Division staff will continue to monitor road conditions and future updates will be sent if conditions merit. 

Please share this information.
