Snow Plowing Updates
by Chris Kelley, Streets Superintendent 
posted December 27, 2015 3:40 PM
The City of Madison is expecting a blustery, wintry mix storm to start during the morning on Monday, December 28th and continue into the early morning hours of Tuesday, December 29th. The Streets Division is monitoring the situation and we have a plan in place.

Starting on Sunday, December 27th, crews began our anti-icing operations on our major streets by applying salt brine to keep the snow and ice from bonding with the pavement. 

On Monday morning, the Streets Division will send 32 crews out to service the city's salt routes. Salt routes are the main arterials, main connector streets, streets on Madison Metro routes, and streets around schools and hospitals. We will continue to service the salt routes during the entire storm. We will also be applying sand as needed on the residential streets.

Once the storm transitions to snow, the Streets Division will continue servicing the salt routes and staff will monitor the snow accumulation totals to determine if a snow emergency is required. A snow emergency will not be declared unless the City receives three or more inches of snow on the roadways. Keep in mind that residential streets will not be plowed until we have three or more inches of snow accumulated on roads, and only after the storm has ended, or nearing its end. Streets Division staff will monitor conditions throughout the storm and will provide future updates.

Considering this storm will be dropping ice and sleet as well as snow, driving conditions will be slippery in parts, especially on residential streets. Please be cautious, be patient, and make good choices. Plan for extra travel time, allow extra braking distance, and follow all other safe winter driving techniques.
