With snow in the forecast, road crews spent Tuesday applying sand, mixed with a dry deicer, in strategic areas throughout the county. Spots that are prone to becoming icy and hazardous included hills, curves, signed intersections and bridges. Hours before this morning’s commute, graders and snow plows were clearing Priority 1 and 2 roads (emergency routes and primary arterials respectively).
Motorists should remember to stay 50-feet back from snow removal equipment and NEVER attempt to pass on the right side. Property owners should also clear their storm drains of debris, snow and ice.
