Twenty City crews began treating arterials at 4 p.m. and continue to apply granular salt pre-wet with brine to help prevent snow and ice from bonding to the pavement. Crews will patrol overnight to respond to changing conditions. Pavement temperatures are expected to fall below freezing by midnight, and drivers and pedestrians are urged to be alert for slick spots, especially on untreated streets and sidewalks. Drivers are urged to allow extra travel time, slow down, allow plenty of following distance, and allow City crews plenty of room to work.
