Snow Plowing Updates
by Chris Kelley, Streets Superintendent

Ugly, icy conditions persist. The Streets Division has been treating the roads of Madison since the storm began, but there are slippery parts. The main thoroughfares in Madison are in decent condition, but residential streets, shared-use paths, and sidewalks are quite slick, so everyone must be careful when traveling through the city. All roadway users should anticipate a challenging evening commute that will require everyone to make good choices. If you need to be on the roads, please drive slowly and cautiously. Stay alert and allow for plenty of extra stopping distance.

Streets Division crews have been maintaining the salt routes since the storm began in the very early morning hours. Additional crews were called in to spread sand in residential areas for traction, putting the grand total at 42 deployed pieces of equipment to treat the streets. 

The Streets Division will keep crews treating the salt routes and spreading sand in residential areas through the evening commute. Crews will continue treating the salt routes later into the evening as well to have these main thoroughfares ready for the Tuesday commute.

Staff will monitor the roads carefully throughout the night, and operations will adjust as conditions merit. Temperatures are expected to rise, which could help melt some of the ice, but with so much moisture on the ground, and road temperatures hovering close to freezing, ice could reform after melting and slippery patches reappear. To be on the safe side, commuters should plan for a long, slippery Tuesday morningcommute - especially in residential streets, sidewalks, and shared-use paths - so be sure to give yourself extra time to get to work, school, etc
