Wednesday, April 18 Snow Plow Update

April 18, 2018 12:05 PM

When the snow begins, the Streets Division will deploy trucks to plow and treat the salt route network. These are the main thoroughfares of Madison, metro bus routes, and roads around schools and hospitals.

Forecasts show snow arriving this afternoon and lingering through the evening commute and well into the night, so those on the road today should anticipate encountering snowy conditions. Remember to make good choices while making your way through the city. Be slow. Be alert. Be patient. Keep in mind that while the salt crews will be out on the main streets, when it is actively snowing even the main roads will become covered, and will remain covered until the truck can make another loop through their route.  

Crews will remain on the salt routes for the duration of the storm, and into the overnight hours.
The Thursday morning commute could prove slippery in spots, especially in low traffic residential areas that are not on salt routes. Be sure to allow for extra commuting time to get to your destinations safely and on time.  
Streets Division staff will be monitoring the roads and the weather carefully. Operations will adjust to whatever the weather gives, and future updates will be provided if conditions require it.
