Snow Plowing Updates
by Chris Kelley, Streets Superintendent 
posted December 25, 2016 9:04 AM
There's freezing rain this morning, and the roads are slippery. The Streets Division has had crews out to since it began, however, everyone must use great care today in their travel, and anticipate slick conditions. Residential streets, hills, curves, and intersections in particular will be icy until temperatures rise above freezing later today.

The Streets Division deployed 34 crews when the freezing rain began. They will be maintaining the salt routes, which are the major thoroughfares of our city, and responding to slippery calls throughout the day. Slippery, icy sections are expected even on these major routes, so everyone is reminded again to be cautious.

Crews will remain on throughout the event, and Streets Division staff will continually monitor conditions. Temperatures are expected to rise, at which time the freezing rain should transition to liquid rain, and the road conditions should improve as the ice melts. However, if conditions remain icy, crews and staff will remain on the job to keep the roads safe for all roadway users today. Additional updates will be provided if conditions warrant.

Icy conditions are unequivocally hazardous, so please make good choices on the roads today. Watch your speed. Allow for plenty of extra travel time and braking distance. Stay focused on safe arrival at your destination, and exercise patience. Above all, be safe out there.
