"Residents are asked to get sand from these locations and not to come to the Streets Division facilities at 1501 W. Badger Rd or 4602 Sycamore Av," Streets Division spokesperson George Dreckmann said. "We have too much equipment moving around our facilities so it is dangerous for individuals to use our yards for sand."
The sand is mixed with small amounts of salt to prevent it from freezing. For additional information on the sand sites or winter parking visit the Streets Division's web site
