Pre-treatment of Streets Underway in Lee's Summit

Crews will continue to pre-treat secondary and residential streets throughout the community until 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31. The Snow Desk, available at (816) 969-1870, will remain open until 7 p.m. tonight and will re-open at 11 p.m. tonight. City crews will work throughout the night, beginning at 11 p.m., and during the weekend to treat accumulating snowfall on roadways.

There is a chance of snow, freezing drizzle and sleet before 3 p.m. today. More of the same wintery mix, including freezing rain is expected tonight and on Saturday morning, Feb. 1.

The sleet, ice and temperatures below 30 degrees today (Jan. 31), Saturday, and Sunday, Feb. 2 will impact snow removal efforts. As a result roadways are expected to become slick overnight and into tomorrow. Residents are reminded that plowing may not be an option if there is an inch or less of sleet/snow and ice. These conditions make it difficult to achieve bare pavement, especially along less traveled roadways. Also, the effectiveness of rock salt is lessened as temperatures drop below 30 degrees as is now expected today and throughout the weekend.
