City Crews Preparing for Winter Storm

The City’s crews are preparing for another winter storm set to begin late tonight, Wed., March 9. Crews began applying salt brine to primary streets on Tuesday. Pretreatment with salt brine and rock salt continues today on residential streets, and the remainder of primary and secondary streets. Crews are set to report at 11 p.m. tonight to plow and treat streets as needed, and are scheduled around the clock through Saturday, March 12.

Dry snow accumulations of five to eight inches are expected, and wind gusts of up to 30 miles per hour are expected so drifting is likely. Depending on total snow accumulations, it’s expected to take crews from 32.5-40 hours after snow stops falling to plow and treat all streets. Warming temperatures and sunshine starting Saturday will help with melting.

The City will continue to monitor the weather and updates its response as needed.
