Snow Plowing Update: February 24, 2017

February 24, 2017 11:37 AM

Winter's back, Madison, and the Streets Division is ready for it. Tonight's forecast is calling for the potential for both snow and freezing rain. The Friday morning commute could therefore prove slippery, so be sure to allow plenty of extra time to get to your destination as you take it slow and safe through the city. If snow or freezing rain commences, the Streets Division will deploy 32 crews to treat the salt routes. The salt routes are the major thoroughfares of Madison, Metro bus routes, and roads around schools and hospitals. Crews will stay on these routes for the duration of the storm. Current forecasts are also calling for a wintry mix to persist throughout the day on Friday. If that comes to pass, the Streets Division will maintain the salt routes for the duration on the winter storm. But if conditions change, our operations will adjust to match whatever the weather gives. Future updates will also be provided. If the winter weather arrives as predicted tonight, the salt routes will be treated throughout the overnight hours. All roadway users should still plan for slippery conditions for the Friday morning commute, especially in residential areas. While we all enjoyed the spring-like weather over the past few days, we should not let that lead us to forget our good winter driving techniques, especially in conditions like these that could produce very slick roads. Please give yourself extra stopping distance at intersections and with cars ahead of you. Be slow, cautious, and patient on the roads and paths. And, as always, make good choices.
