WE MAKE THE WINTER ROADS SAFE
During the winter, we monitor street conditions on a 24-hour basis. Day or night, when there is significant existing accumulation from a snow weather event with a forecast of continuing accumulation, crews begin plowing and will continue to plow and sand as needed.

EMERGENCY AFTER HOURS
A combination of plowing, sanding and deicing tactics are used to allow the safest possible driving conditions. Maintaining traction is the key to safe traffic flow during the winter months. With temperatures continually fluctuating, causing melting and freezing conditions, sanding is a vital part of our winter operation. Deicing material is mixed with sand to keep the sand from freezing.Once plowing activities are completed, sanding procedures will begin in designated locations as needed. Designated areas include school crosswalks, controlled intersections, curves, bridges and hills. During storm activities, liquid deice is applied to selected arterials, collector streets, and street intersections to prevent snow from bonding to the pavement. Liquid deicing also to provide better traction and to aids in snow removal efforts.
In high traffic through streets were snow accumulation can affect street capacity, snow removal may be required.
