Snow Plowing Updates

Streets Division crews have been out on our city's salt routes since 4am in response to this morning's snow and sleet.

The Streets Division will keep 32 crews on the salt routes throughout this storm in order to keep traffic moving safely. As a reminder, salt routes are the main arterials, main connector streets, streets on Madison Metro routes and streets around schools and hospitals. We will also be applying sand to the hills, intersections, and curves on residential streets as needed.

Slippery spots may exist on the roads, especially on residential areas, so please continue commuting slowly, alertly, and patiently. Combining your good choices with Streets Division efforts will make this a safe winter event for all users of the roadways.

Streets Division staff will continuously monitor the roads and adjustments will be made to our operations as needed. Future updates will be provided as conditions warrant.
