In anticipation of another round of snow for tonight, the Streets Department will have 75 salt trucks on the streets. Crews will be treating primary and secondary roadways, with an emphasis on bridges and known problem areas.
We urge residents and businesses to salt their sidewalks and steps in advance of the freezing rain that is expected this evening. If traveling on the roads tonight, motorists should leave plenty of room between themselves and the salt trucks.
