City Crews Complete Three Rounds of Street Treatment, Thurs. Feb. 7

Public Works plowed and treated primary and secondary roads Thursday after the overnight freezing rain/sleet/snow event. Based on the long-range forecast, daytime temperatures, heavy vehicle traffic and the presence of sunlight, conditions were favorable for plowing and treating primary and secondary roads one last time before discontinuing snow operations.  All streets were treated a minimum of three times.

With limited traffic on residential streets, and temperatures expected to dip into the single digits overnight, traction should be improved with the sleet layer remaining over the base ice layer. A brief warm up this weekend should begin to clear off all streets.
