Free Sand Available for Icy Sidewalks

February 13, 2013

Due to Sundays' heavy rain, many city sidewalks are icy. Free sand is available for Madison residents at sites throughout the city. This sand is intended for the use of individual Madison residents and not for large volume users such as contractors and apartment management firms.

• Monona Golf Course (Monona and E. Dean)

"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.
