Snow plowing updates - From Chris Kelley

Snow Plowing Updates
by Chris Kelley, Streets Superintendent
posted January 15, 2017 5:02 PM
Tonight's forecast shows a wintry mix that could make for a tough Monday morningcommute through Madison. Sleet and freezing rain will create icy patches on the roads, paths, and sidewalks, so be sure to give yourself extra time to get to your destination. And be sure to allow for extra stopping distance.

The Streets Division will deploy 32 crews to maintain the salt routes when this winter storm begins tonight. Salt routes are the major thoroughfares, Madison Metro bus routes, and roads around schools and hospitals. While there will be trucks available to spread sand for traction on residential streets that do not receive salt, slick conditions should be expected in those areas. All roadway users are reminded to make good choices by driving slow, staying alert, and being patient.

Streets Division staff will be closely watching the roads throughout this event. While this storm is expected to transition to liquid rain later Monday, air and pavement temperatures will be hovering around freezing, so slick areas could develop as damp sections of road freeze - so everyone should remain cautious during the evening commute as well. Operations will adjust if necessary to whatever the weather gives us, and future updates will be provided as conditions merit.
