Currently, roads remain in generally in good condition but there are slick areas as snow has moved in. Public Works crews will continue to be ready to respond to weather conditions and deploy snow and ice equipment accordingly.
As a reminder, our primary focus remains treating major streets with bridges/overpasses and inclines/declines. We’ll then treat remaining major streets on an as-needed basis. Emergency service providers such as hospitals, police and fire precincts will also receive special considerations during inclement weather. Snow plows are only utilized when significant accumulation greater than 3” is forecasted.
Public Works Snow and Ice Operation includes:
- 6 brine units
- 16 salt and sand trucks
- 8 snow plows
MATA is running but expect some delays.
